I admit it, I’m a Google Gal at heart. When I need to find something, Google search is my first line of defense. It takes a lot to make me try a different search engine, but I was completely wowed by Instagrok. Instagrok is a very different type of search engine. This search tool returns a web of results, instead of just direct results. Information is provided in the form of links, images, videos, and more. You can expand your search by clicking on different parts of the web.
Instagrok has a lot of great features for students and teachers, including the ability to adjust the difficulty level of the text, keep a journal, and take auto-generated quizzes.
Instagrok is free for individual users, and also has teacher/classroom accounts for $45.
