Use @Gooru to Search Common Core Content by Standard! It's like Google for Teachers!

A Safe, Refined Search Engine for Education

The theme of 'organization' seems to be popular in my posts lately.  I find myself gravitating towards resources that are easy to use.  With so many available options, I don't have the time to learn the ins and outs of every resource.  

After seeing someone share Gooru on Twitter, I decided to check it out.  I believe it was my friend, Joan Young (@flourishingkids), who shared the resource.  Sometimes I come across a resource that inspires me to blog about it.  Gooru is one such resource.  I wanted to share it with my readers because I for the simple reason that I think it's really cool!

What is Gooru?

Gooru is a search engine designed for education.  As you can see in the screen shot above, I typed in 'fractions' into the search bar.  Then, many resources began to populate on my screen.  In an instant, I had fraction resources in the following forms:

- videos
- interactives
- exams
- textbooks
- handouts
- lessons
- slides
