Most of the tech tools and information he shared with us you can find in the webmix Symbaloo on the Online Databases & Reference tab. The orange ones on the right are what we discussed. As well as what is listed in the "Authority Check".
It is just so important to be helping our children learn how to navigate the internet and to know that just because information is online does NOT make it true!! Kind of like that old adage that just because it's in print (usually newspapers) doesn't mean it's true! One of my biggest take-aways from him is that he said, "Google does not read English." HOLY COW! Duh! We forget that tho -- and then we forget that kids are so literal or still in the concrete stage that when we ask them to do a search they will type in EXACTLY what you tell them to look for. For example, "what are British students learning about the American Revolution." They expect Google to read this and understand what they are looking for. This is not the case and this is why we need to practice research skills in our learning.
Oh on another completely unrelated note...I'm going to hashtag our library with #harrystonelibrary :)
