Educator Resources for Internet Search

You have questions, and the Internet has answers. But finding those answers in an endless sea of web pages can be daunting. Tim and Moby can help you use search engines to turn up just what you're looking for. Google, Bing, Yahoo, and the like focus your search by filtering out the clutter, leaving only the most helpful pages for you to browse. Type in your query, and the search engine breaks it down into keywords, then looks for pages to match. Adding more keywords focuses your search, leading to better results! Those results are weighted according to patterns, like popularity and what's in the news. But you can influence which pages appear in what order: Try refining your search with quotation marks or plus and minus symbols. Whether you've got a research paper to write or a debate you want resolved, press "Play" and learn the best ways to find facts online.
