search engines

As you know, I am working on my master's in instructional technology which basically means that I can be a media specialist in a public school setting. Also means that I can teach about technology and how to do cool stuff with it. Each time I set out to do school work, I learn something new that freaks me out because I feel overwhelmed! There is so much out there that I don't know about technology not to mention how to use it. Today, one of the exercises was using various search engines. I found some cool ones, and I thought my teacher friends might be interested!


Carol Hurst (This one is more of a literature site than a search engine)

Kathy Schrock


Librarians' Internet Index

Mamma Metasearch

Noodletools (You gotta love that name!)

I hope these help you in your classroom or at home with your own kids. I know that I plan to share them with Luke when he needs to find something for school. Google is fine, but it can take you to never-neverland sometimes and you can get bogged down in all that it has to offer.
