Web 2.0 Tuesday (because Wednesday is a holiday): Boolify

 

boolify

Boolify was created because parents, librarians and teachers felt that it was too difficult for children to understand web searching.

Boolify makes it easier for students to understand their web search by illustrating the logic of their search, and by showing them how each change to their search instantly changes their results.

It’s simple, immediate and easy to use with your class or in your library.

Search results are presented through Google’s “Safe Search STRICT” technology. There are two important caveats: a) no filtering technology is 100% secure and 2) we are unable to control or modify the results that we provide, beyond the filtering settings available through Google.

What makes this tool great is that it is visually appealing, easy to modify, searches can be saved and the results are all kept on one page. Check out the overview below and take a look at this blog post that shows students using Boolify in the classroom.
