Google Scholar

As educators we not only need to model life-long learning for our students, we also need to stay up-to-date on the current research and trends in Education. You may have guessed it, but Google has a tool for that! It's called Google Scholar. Scholar limits search results to scholarly article, judicial rulings and books. It does not include unreputable sources or blogs, instead focusing only on profeessional sources. Best part, it's easy one to use. Here's how:

It is important to know that not all articles are freely available on the internet, so you may run into some road blocks when you try to access some of the articles. Also, with Google Books, many of the books (especially currently copyrighted books), you will not be able to read the entire book online.

You can use Google Scholar to stay up-to-date and make sure you have the information on the latest educational research.
