Developing your own search engine can be a good way to help students limit the scope of their searches. You might want to do this if you’re teaching younger students about search strategies and you want them to use a search engine that only indexes a few dozen websites so that you can have some assurance that they won’t be landing on pages of questionable content. Creating your own search engine is relatively easy thanks to the Google Custom Search Engine tool.
Take a look at my video and slides below to learn how you can create your own custom search engine.
Slides of the process are embedded below.
