Objectivity Wizard – Based on grade level, Objectivity Wizard teaches students to think about the source of
information and helps them to better validate fact from fiction. Depending on the grade, students are
presented with Objectivity Wizard cards to help question, verify and validate the source of information contained on
a particular website or document.
Objectivity Wizard cards are grade specific and are presented to
students each time they make a citation to a given website, document or link. Objectivity cards teach students
to think about the sources they are citing, the underlying motivations of the website including advertising vs. education,
authenticity, credibility, and verifying the credentials of the author.

to enhance the search experience by giving students the ability to add customizations and fun search
interfaces to make searching that much more fun and interactive.

Students do a lot of learning in groups. With Searchlaborate, students are assigned to a group with a topic

search, bookmark, add citations based on the assigned topic and their shared results form the basis of their
Topicals are “mini” search engines created by Teachers for a specific grade level and subject and most
importantly, a specific Topic, ie. “Ancient Civilizations”. Why Topicals you ask? Save time when teaching by keeping the search results
relevant, content appropriate and fact based in your classroom.
Assign Activities that are created by Teachers and customized by grade-level and subject and that are easily
aligned to the curriculum.
For example, get your class using searchitup! with the
Activity: "Tallest Mountains in the World", or “US Rivers and Mountains” knowing that the
results returned are age and content appropriate. Share with and borrow from existing Activities developed by
fellow teachers to keep your students learning!
