Chrome Search Filter & One Tab

Students conducting research online is now a very regular occurrence in my classroom.

I'm spending time teaching them proper search techniques, the difference between reliable and unreliable sites and the importance of citing their work.

Sometimes, though, I don't have time for students to search out their own research.  I just want to give them direction of where to look for the information. I want to ensure that they are exploring sites that are reliable, on topic and at an appropriate reading level.

Here is how you can do this:

Use the "Search tools" button in the Google search page to filter the results by reading level.

There are three options:

  • Basic
  • Intermediate
  • Advanced

Open up all the sites that are reliable, on topic and that those that students would benefit from exploring.

Then, add the extension One Tab to group all of the selected sites onto one tab.  

Share a link of the grouped sites with students to offer them a quick way to search a list of pre-selected and appropriate pages.

Check out this quick screencast for a quick breakdown.
