Online Searches for Educational Resources to Improve, World of Learning
World of Learning – June 8th, 2011
One of the tools search engines use to help serve you the best information is relevance. Vastly oversimplified, this means that if you do a search on the word “blue,” search engines crawl through sites looking for content that contain the word “blue.” They know that content with “blue” in the headline, URL or first paragraph is more important that something with “blue” at the bottom of a page or in a caption. Even with that logic, a search on “blue” will get you more than 2 billion results.
What if you’re searching online for resources to use in a classroom? No one wants to wade through 2 billion results. Things are about to get a lot better for educators.
