One of my virtual friends, Sonya Dykeman at The Library Patch, created a sqworl to help students find a kid-safe search engine. You can see her post here.
She created a graphic link that takes you to a sqworl, which is basically a web page with graphic links to other web pages. Way cool! At the click of a button, students can see several ways to search online, without the uncertain results that Google delivers.
I added her sqworl to my Library Resources Page, and then I decided to create my own sqworl.
Here’s why. A challenge I have when helping students on projects is finding images, without defaulting to Google. I want our students to be sensitive to copyright issues, and I want them to have several resources to choose from, rather than mindlessly Googling.
I created a sqworl for copyright-free images for school projects, and here it is!
Click on it to give it a try.
You can copy this graphic and put it on your own web page at school, so that YOUR students can use image sources other than Google. The link will take you to this address: http://sqworl.com/ceicd6
If you know of other great sources for images students can use in their projects, please let me know, and I’ll add them to the sqworl for all of us! I hope this helps you in your library teaching!
