Limiting Our Students Via Race, Class, and Gender

It's critical to keep bias out of the classroom, where no student deserves to be judged by his or her race, socioeconomic class, or gender.

To paraphrase Whitehead and Dewey, this involves a to and fro between teachers and students. Teachers learn how and when to back off and when to step up.

Wonder - A New Search Engine by Experts in the Field

Wonder - A New Search Engine by Experts in the Field | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"Wonder is a research engine fueled by experts. Explore results contributed by real people, and let our research network filter for you. It's like scanning the bookshelves of people you admire, and having a librarian help you."


Via Beth Dichter, Mark E. Deschaine Ph.D.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 22, 4:46 PM

Check out this new search engine called Wonder. Wonder is a 'human-centric' search engine. People who are knowledgeable in the field recommend resources. In fact, if you have a special area you need researched you may enter a 'ticket' explaining what you are looking for and researchers will "email you back high quality resources ASAP."

The search engine is free to use, but you must create a log-in (three choices available).

Once you enter your search terms items will appear with a small visual and some text. You may choose to save any item (and like or share an item). You may also request additional information (see note above) and the list of contributors is viewable allowing you to filter results by reviewer.

There are so many websites that students find that are not the best. This search engine would be great for students still learning how to search, or as a way to potentially see if the sites they find are also listed by Wonder. Take some time to explore and consider sharing this with students (I would suggest high school, and possibly middle school).
