The Week of Searching: Wiki Summarizer

Wiki Summarizer is a useful tool for searching and seeing things represented in a different way.  You will see a screen shot below of my search for “Orlando”.  Wiki Summarizer simply categorizes my search into different related areas.  I can then find a short summary, full summary, etc. as each of the bubbles out to the right open up full descriptions of that particular related topic.  Instead of fighting through link after link on Google, this may be a quicker, more efficient way for our students to conduct introductory searches on certain topics and to get the research process started.  I suggest you check it out!
