Children's search engines; 13 reviewed and assessed Introduction When searching the internet - particularly with children in mind, it's important to ensure that you can feel safe with what they are doing, and where they are going. There are a fair number of child friendly search engines available - at least, that's what they call themselves, so I decided to take a look at them to see what I thought of them. I wanted to get through a lot fairly quickly, so these are just my personal impressions, and I would strongly advise you to check through them yourselves to see if you think that they are appropriate (or not) for your own children. I choose a few terms that I was keen on trying out - ‘dogging’ which is a British term (I believe) for a certain type of sexual practice that generally takes place in car parks, blue tits - for obvious reasons, and schoolgirl - again for obvious reasons. Several engines use a variant of Google search with the safe search function on, so I thought it was best to try that first. Dib Dab Doo and Dilly too...

Open education materials for pre-Kindergarten to high school students I am a community moderator for opensource.com as well as a mother, a librarian, and a former public school teacher.

What I have discovered since exploring open source materials for children and teens is astonishing. The amount of open source materials is simply breathtaking. Open source materials: where? A. Use the key search terms: teacher AND free AND resources 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Expand your search outside your local area, state, province, or country and the amount of free and open educational materials only increases. Note the line between what is considered open source and what is not is often gray for non open source purists. B. Open source materials: Now what? C. 1. 2. 3. D. E.

80 Open Education Resource (OER) Tools for Publishing and Development Initiatives Many Open Education Resources (OER) have been introduced by governments, universities, and individuals within the past few years. OERs provide teaching and learning materials that are freely available and offered online for anyone to use. Whether you’re an instructor, student, or self-learner, you have access to full courses, modules, syllabi, lectures, assignments, quizzes, activities, games, simulations, and tools to create these components. While some OERs include OpenCourseWare (OCW) or other educational materials, they may also offer the means to alter those courses through editing, adding to those courses through publication, and the ability to shape the tools that share those resources. To that end, the list below — arranged in alphabetical order — includes 80 online resources that you can use to learn how to build or participate in a collaborative educational effort that focuses on publication and development of those materials.
