We’re moving into an environmental research project as we shift towards the end of the year, and I know I need to do more to help my students with the research component. I am going to try using InstaGrok with them. This search engine/information collection site seems pretty nifty, and if nothing else, shows how researchers need to collect and then use information in their writing (this assignment is a hybrid of essay and multimedia composition).
At the site, teachers create a class code that students can sign up with (no email required), and then search queries and more can be archived in a document journal, complete with hyperlinks to articles, etc. Check out InstaGrok:
