Thing #17: Rollyo

Wow! Wish I had known about this when my students and I worked on a Holocaust project in May! Rollyo allows the students to search for information from reliable sources as established by the teacher, and therefore, frees the teacher from worry that the students will be using information from unreliable sources. I don't think students would feel restricted by this at all; in fact, they would probably be happy to not have to sit through a lesson about what kind of websites are trustworthy, and they would have their search limited to "good" information only.

I created a search called "Baby" to help me answer those random new parent questions. My search looks for information from the following sites: Baby Center, Parenting, Pampers, WebMD, and Mayo Clinic. My son has been eating a lot compared to what we were told in the hospital, so check out what I found from my Rollyo search.
