History Engine: Tools for Collaborative Education and Research | Home - 5 views

    "The History Engine is an educational tool that gives students the opportunity to learn history by doing the work-researching, writing, and publishing-of a historian. The result is an ever-growing collection of historical articles or "episodes" that paints a wide-ranging portrait of life in the United States throughout its history and that is available to scholars, teachers, and the general public in our online database."

Google For Educators - Web Search - 0 views

    Web search can be a remarkable research tool for students - and we've heard from educators that they could use some help to teach better search skills in their classroom.

    The following Search Education lessons were developed by Google Certified Teachers to help you do just that. The lessons are short, modular and not specific to any discipline so you can mix and match to what best fits the needs of your classroom. Additionally, all lessons come with a companion set of slides (and some with additional resources) to help you guide your in-class discussions.
    Might be useful when teaching online source evaluation and the use of search engines to students.
