Research a topic with an interactive map

Customize it with facts, links, and videos

Share it to show what you’ve learned

Christine Bushong's insight:

This is a different way for students to do research with search results that include facts, visuals, a glossary, website links, media, and even quizzes.  Collect what you find in your Journal and keep track of where you've been in History.  Much more student-centered than a simple Google search, this is worth exploring.  Teacher accounts $35/yr allow viewing student work.

Rubric Assessment of Information Literacy Skills - RAILS

RAILS helps librarians assess student information literacy skills exhibited in "artifacts of student learning" like research papers, presentations, worksheets, portfolios, or reflective journals. Using the AAC&U VALUE rubrics and the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education as starting points, RAILS assists librarians who seek to create campus-specific rubrics, "norm" them for use with multiple raters, and gather results data that inform instructional improvements.

Christine Bushong's insight:

Although this is for assessing higher education information literacy skills, it might be helpful when reinforcing the importance of information literacy to students and teachers.

Ixquick Search Engine

Ixquick Search Engine | Librarians Teaching Information Literacy | Scoop.it
A global metasearch engine with special features:Ixquick Protects Your Privacy!

Ixquick does NOT collect or share ANY personal information!
Nada. Zilch. Nothing.
Read more on our privacy position or go directly to Ixquick's Privacy Policy.

Ixquick is the world's most powerful search engine employing the most advanced metasearch technology.

Ixquick search results are more comprehensive and more accurate than other search engines. Ixquick's unique capabilities include an Advanced Search, a global search and power refinement.

Find phone numbers and addresses worldwide with Ixquick's International Phone Directory, or search through 18 million hours of video fun with Ixquick's Video search.

More comprehensive search resultsWhen you search with Ixquick search engine, you are searching many popular search engines simultaneously and anonymously. Combined, these engines cover more of the Internet than any one search engine alone.

More accurate search resultsAn Ixquick result is awarded one star () for every search engine that chooses it as one of the ten best results for your search. So a five star () result means that five search engines agreed on the result.

This is significant because search engines choose results in different ways, and each approach works well in some cases and poorly in others. A result with many stars was chosen for many different reasons, and is a consensus choice of many search engines.

Also, while irrelevant Web pages can be "optimized" to fool a single search engine's algorithm, it is much harder for a page to fool all the search engines.
