How I Use It
Students go to their teacher's Symbaloo page and find all the links they need to access right there. They can be sorted by type or alphabetize the links to make it easier for students to find which website to go to. There can also be a link to a Google search in the middle of the page which is helpful because if a student has to look something up, then they can click on the Google search and start typing their question.
My Take
I think Symbaloo is a beneficial tool for students in younger grades (K-4). Symbaloo can be a gateway into creating favorites. I think as students get older they will learn and understand how to add bookmarks to their search engine and use those more often than a Symbaloo page. Symbaloo is a good foundation to help students learn to navigate between internet sites.
