Instagrok

Firstly I would like to apologise for not remebering where or who brought this website to my attention. 

Instagrok, apart from an aweful name, is a search engine designed especially for students.  After you search your keywords, it presents its information as an interactive mind map which includes text, pictures and videos.  I found this to be useful to assist students to organise their thoughts and findings when researching topics on the internet and kept students from wandering too far away from the topic they were originally researching.  Students can delete information from there mindmap and also save it for future reference.

There is also a feature to adjust the students age to differentiate the amount of information that is provided by the search.  I trialled this during my prac experience and give it the big thumbs up!
