This weekly post is charged with giving you weekly Tech Tips that you can use immediately in your library, in the classroom, or at home with your own family.
This week we have a Google Search tip. Have you ever done a Google Search and have all kinds of results that are either too sophisticated or too basic? Yes, you say? Well, here is a solution for you. It is an awesome feature that will let you filter your results by reading levels.
- Go to www.google.com and search for a particular topic.
- When the results are displayed, click the SEARCH TOOLS tab in the center of the screen.
- Click ALL RESULTS, then click READING LEVEL.
- Click either Basic, Intermediate, or Advanced.
- Notice the changes in your sites as you choose different levels. Advanced returns college level results, while Basic will give you results from sites like BrainPop and Scholastic.
- Once you choose a level, future searches during your session are returned on the same reading ability.
A great way to tailor the research to your patrons!
