Teacher Reflection

instaGrok does offer a FREE version that has been used with students taking MST. Great resource for those hard to find toipcs. Great tool for web evaluation practices as it has built in criteria and questions. This has proven to be a great resource. You can set-up a clasroom once you create an eduactor account (FREE for 90 days), receive your educator code and start assigning articles. 

Students can explore, understand and collect evidience to support search queries.

jalbertson: Instagrok has proven very useful for those students who have a hard time filtering through all the information in some other sites. The hierarchy helps limit what kind of information they are searching for.
