How To Make Students Better Online Researchers | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it
Getting kids to really focus on what exactly they are searching for, and then be able to further distill idea into a few key specific search terms is a skill that we must teach students, and we have to do it over and over again. We never question the vital importance of teaching literacy. An ever more important one that ALL teachers need to be aware of is digital literacy.

OneLook Reverse Dictionary

OneLook Reverse Dictionary | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it
The OneLook reverse dictionary is a great tool to get students thinking about how they explain what words mean. Unlike most dictionaries which gives you the meaning of a word, this one will give you the word as long as you can give the correct meaning. This is a great skill to develop as a language learner.

Mural.ly May Be The Mind Mapping Tool You’ve Been Waiting For

Mural.ly May Be The Mind Mapping Tool You’ve Been Waiting For | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it
Mural.ly is a new tool (still in beta, launched last week) that is a cross between Prezi and mind maps. It is easy to use and share what you create (perfect for most students, teachers, and parents) but the real beauty of mural.ly is in its lack of structure.

Infographics- An easier way to get backlinks to your site | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it
Infographics are trending on the internet. There are used as a backlink bait by many of the popular brands. It serves as a dual advantage as it benefits both the creater and the user. The creator of the infographics is benefitted by getting a backlink to its website and the user of the infographic has an advantage of displaying visual friendly content on the site. What are Infographics? These are image visualization of data or information. It draws inspiration from Pictographs which are used as a picture language.

The best way is to publish an infographic with a code to allow further embedding (The embed code contains the source of the image which is your website).
