The Week of Searching: InstaGrok

This week we have been focusing on the process of searching and some interesting search tools for students to use.  InstaGrok is another search engine I like because of how it visually organizes information based on a simple search term.  Below you will see my search for “Orlando” and how it organizes information.  To the left is the visual representation, to the right are simple facts about the topic in text.  What I like is the ability to click on each circle to learn more about that key term AND the ability to click on the “Journal” feature and keep notes of the information I find most useful.  I think it is a great way for students and teachers to begin the search process.

 

Good luck Groking and have a great weekend.
