Choosito Search Engine
One tool he discussed during his presentation was Choosito, which provides trusted content and safer access to the world wide web. Content can be filtered by reading level and subject area. Choosito also encourages users to evaluate sites based on a series of questions. This is a great way for students to assess the credibility and validity of the resources that they view. Head over to Choosito to sign up for a free trial, and check out the video below for more information.
