Surely Scoop.it is hard at work developing a way for readers and curators to search within its sites, but the tool just isn't ready yet.
In the meantime, I wanted to share a workaround so folks who want to search within a Scoop.it site can do so.
The way to do this is to go to Google search and type the prefix "site:" in front of the url of the desired site to be searched. Then skip a space and enter the search term(s).
For example, if I wanted to search one of my Scoop.it sites, Into the Driver's Seat, for entries containing information about the Flipped Classroom, the search string would look like this:
site:http://www.scoop.it/t/into-the-driver-s-seat Flipped Classroom
Note that there is no space between the colon after "site" and the url, but there is a space after the url and the search term(s). In my experience, it does not seem to matter if the first letter of the search term words is a capital.
If you have additional suggestions for how to search a specific Scoop.it site, please hit the sharing icon (dialogue bubble), below, and comment.
Hope this is helpful. -JL
