Searching the Web

If research is required in your class, you can count on your students using the Web. Do they however, know how to efficiently search for information?

Most of our students are familiar with looking up small bits of information on the Web and just aren't aware of how to narrow down their search results. Commoncraft has produced a short video that could really help your students with their research. This video demonstrates different techniques for researching the Web, is only three minutes long, and very informative.

Commoncraft is a company that focuses on taking a variety of topics and explaining them in three minute videos. They also produce custom videos for other companies, but they have a online repository of videos for evaluation.
