New Search Engine!
The MN Dept of Ed has passed down a great new(er) search engine designed with students in mind. It's www.sweetsearch.com . I did some side-by-side searches with Sweet Search and Google and although they were similar, Sweet Search did not come up with as many .coms. The results are supposed to be more credible. Mary and I will put a link to it on our blog in a prominent spot soon. Next time you or your students are searching/researching, give it a try!
