A New Search Tool For You and Your Students

3/18/2015 6:10:00 AM

During the Google Summit in Burlington this past weekend, I stumbled across a new resource that I thought would be useful for teachers as they support their students in doing research. A new tool called Choosito, allows students and teachers to avoid inappropriate sites and also search by grade level and reading level.  The two options for searching on Choosito are a web search and a library search. The library search gives access to a growing number of sites that have already been vetted by other educators and the web search provides a broader search that does not bring up sites that would be inappropriate for a library.

For a quick overview of Choosito, check out the two-minute video below.
