Chapter 30. Online Education > Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting

When students take to the Web for their research, one of the biggest issues is limiting access to age-appropriate content. That’s why, for younger students at least, most educators do not recommend using the traditional search engines. Yes, a grade schooler can use Yahoo! or Google to search for information to use in a biology report, but the chances are good that the results will contain some sites that offer biology lessons of a distinctly adult nature.

A better choice, for younger students, is to use the age-appropriate sites listed in this chapter, or the filtered search engines detailed in Chapter 7, “Family-Safe Browsing.” These sites ensure that users access only non-offensive content; some of these sites (such as bigchalk) even offer searches by specific grade level.
