DuckDuckGo

DuckDuckGo | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it

DuckDuckGo is an excellent alternative to using Google. As well as providing good results, the use of many short cuts that are quick and easy to remember (such as !images for example) DuckDuckGo is very strong on privacy, and doesn't store your search results. They're currently attacking Google both on that front and also on the concept of filter bubbles. This is a term coined by Eli Pariser, who says that Google is able to identify what you're interested in and adjust the results you see accordingly. Consequently you see more of what you like, and less of what you don't, which in turn reinforces your world view, and excludes important stuff to further down the list of results.

Back to School With Google Docs | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it

Google Docs New Integrated Research Tool

Google Docs New Integrated Research Tool | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it

Google Docs has many useful features for helping students develop writing skills. When I recently opened a Google Document to plan a teacher training on Using Google Docs to Facilitate a Writing Workshop I was pleasantly surprised to find a new and powerful integrated research feature which couldn't be easier to use. Just pull down the Tools menu, click on Research and search for information in the research pane that appears on the right side of the screen. Users never have to leave the page.

6 Great Platforms Where Students Share Book Reviews and Reading Recommendations | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it

One of the best ways to get your students motivated about reading is to provide them with online platforms where they can meet other student readers and share their recommendations, reads, and book reviews.

Top Websites that provide Educational Video Tutorials for Teachers | Teacher-Librarian | Scoop.it

"Video tutorials are great way to stimulate students cognitive capabilities and elicit more engagement from their part. But not all the teachers have the necessary skills or time to go about creating tutorials for their students and this is why we should always make sure we have a bunch of ready-made tutorials at our disposal for rainy days."
