wayback-machineAs more and more of our lives and those of our students are placed online, we need to be reminded that once something is placed on the Internet - it NEVER goes away. This site is a great tool for illustrating this. Enter the URL of a site and view a multitude of archived copies. For example, enter the Shelby County URL and see what the site looked like in October 1999. You can even see what job postings were available back then!

Do your students need practice searching? Do they know how to choose the important key words that will help them find what they need? Let them try Google a Day. It offers an interesting question each day on different subjects. Once the student enters their answer to the question, Google tells them if they are correct or not. It then gives them tips on search techniques.
