About Me

My photo
I live on a ranch in West Texas, where my husband, son, and I raise a few cattle. Our only crop is feed for the cows and my husband insists he is a "rancher" rather than a "farmer," although the place we now call home used to be his grandfather's farm. I drive 75 miles to Abilene for my job as a University librarian. I love the job and the drive.

Thing 17 - Rollyo

Rollyo is a great tool for searching the web and ensuring quality results. The video by Bruce Goodner of Spring Branch ISD was a wonderful tutorial for Rollyo. I can see that this would be a very good tool for research projects, especially in middle schools and high schools. Not only is it useful to limit searches to authoritative sites, but the process itself can lead to class discussions about why that is important, critical thinking, and analyzing web results. I made a Rollyo for Library 2.0 because libraries and technology is what 23 Things is all about!
