ITT 3 – instaGrok

Once you get past the somewhat bizarre name, instaGrok will become your best friend.

Designed to be the educational version of Google (so it seems), instaGrok allows users to search based on what they need/want to learn. Search results are displayed in graphical form, allowing you to see what other keywords are associated with your original search term.

Here are a few awesome features of the site:

  • finds age-appropriate content on any topic with interactive multimedia (if available)
  • generates quiz questions based on student?s research activity and skill level
  • supports creation of research journals and concept maps for learning assessment

I have been very impressed with instaGrok and it is likely that they will get snapped up by another search giant before too long. They have a unique delivery method that will work extremely well for students of all ages.

Let us know how you use instaGrok in your classroom!
