Description

Sandy Beck, Ed.S., Battlefield Primary School in Catoosa County, says, “I am an enthusiastic supporter of GALILEO. I used GALILEO when I was working on my Ed.S. degree and I continue to use it now for personal and educational purposes. Students need to learn how to access information, but safety and guidance is critical, particularly with elementary age students. Allowing students to use general search engines like Google will overwhelm students with too many results, and students will waste valuable time trying to find reliable, reputable, and relevant information. I work in a primary school, and I have created a student tutorial for my second graders to teach them how to use one of the children’s databases available through GALILEO. My students use this database when doing their animal research projects. Many of the GALILEO resources for students provide Lexile and difficulty levels to help direct teachers and students to resources that will fit their age and learning needs. Information is power, and GALILEO provides Georgians with a wonderful source of information for life and learning.” (2007-08)
