Google Custom Search Engines

No matter how many cool things I show teachers, this one always gets the biggest reaction.

Google Custom Search Engines are a great way to curate content for your kids to make the research process easier and ensure that the websites your students are using are appropriate (both in terms of actual content as well as just appropriate to the research task), while also still giving you the opportunity to teach search skills, since custom searches still require students to enter search terms like a normal Google search.

At the request of a few teachers at the KCI yesterday, I made a quick screencsst to go over the process of making a Google Custom Search. Search on!
