|#1||Watch - Search the Hidden Web|
Libraries provide access to many “hidden web” digital resources.
Watch this video from California State University San Bernadino's John M. Pfau Library to learn more about the hidden web.
Later in this module, you'll learn about the "deep web" digital resources available to you and your students at no charge through INFOhio.
|#2||Search- Learn about Special Search Engines|
Because finding unique or specific information on the visible web can be challenging, there are special search engines designed to help find exactly what you need. Here are some tools to help your students learn about special search engines.
- Learn about popular search tools that can help you find specialized information. Review the Top 10 Search Engines for 2016.
- Try a search using the search terms "personalized learning" and compare the results in WolframAlpha, USA.Gov, Duck Duck Go with results from Google or Bing.
Instruction idea: Have students record the similarities and differences in two search engines. Have them compare the way different search engines retrieve and display results.
|#3||Watch - How Search Engines Work|
Watch this short video from Microsoft Bing to find ways to help your students understand how Internet search engines work.
