Its mission is to help educators teach students how to use the Internet effectively, safely, and responsibly. Below is a description of the products that we have developed in pursuit of our mission. In April 2012, we will release "Teaching Web Research Skills," a search-based, multimedia e-book that teaches educators how to teach students to conduct research on the Internet effectively and efficiently. We will also release a companion e-book for older students, titled "Stop Searching, Start Finding: Get Better Results in Half the Time," and a version for younger students, titled, "How to Be a Rock Star Researcher."
There was a discussion on LIS-UKEIG recently about how to limit a search by date. I posted my response to the list but thought it might be useful for others as well. One of the problems with searching for material in a specific daterange is that it's hard for a search engine to know exactly what is required. For example, if you add the date limit 'last 3 months' that doesn't necessarily mean 'new' pages that have been created in the last three months - if a search engine finds a page written 5 years ago that they've only just included in their database that could be included as a 'new' page (depending on engine of course). There used to be a reasonable number of search engines that allowed you to limit by date, but this functionality is become rarer, oddly enough.
