 very comprehensive website for educators on advance search in Google. It comes with detail lesson plans, slide shows, activities and even video.


Research Tools

Public Data!
Search through databases from around the world, including the World Bank, OECD, Eurostat and the U.S. Census Bureau. After you find what you want, filter through categories to make graphs with the axes you want. Google’s Public Data Explorer then displays the data in a line graph, bar graph, scatterplot or on a map.

Organizing resources and references
A Minimalist Approach to Organization“- by Christopher Mayo. I found this from a forum and the author shared his way of organizing references and citation for his work. He used Evernote as his main tool.
