How Can I Get Students to Start Using GALILEO?

Model using GALILEO in class - current events, pictures or reading excerpts that support the lesson, looking up answers. Then encourage GALILEO for projects. Students always need help completing projects. Steer them away from Google and to these reputable resources.
