Why use Wikipedia or a common web browser to search for content relevant to a topic you’ve been assigned for a research paper? InstaGrok it instead!
InstaGrok produces an interactive concept map based on your keyword search. The example here shows the results from a search on MacBeth. Results are interactive and may include video, images, and other website sources. Students can save notes to a journal about key facts. When ready to write a paper all material can then be referenced from one place. This visual interface makes searching fun and effective.

Teacher accounts are available for an annual cost after a 90 day free trial but what you can do with this as a class is pretty amazing not to mention it’s 21st century skills based.
