My new educational technology page is called Geek Files It lists all my tech pages and bilingual Web Quests.

Search Engines
The Open Directory is a volunteer edited directory similar to Yahoo, but without the ads. Its education sections are particularly good. The Open Directory is also available at Netscape.
Yahoo organizes their sites with subject headings, like a library. The sites you find with Yahoo are more likely to be relevant. Yahooligans allows you to find web sites which are appropriate for children.
These are two search engines which allow you to search for Spanish-language sites.
"Ask Jeeves" is a very easy search engine to use. You phrase your search as a question, and Jeeves selects a few interesting sites for you.
Dogpile searches many search engines simultaneously. This saves you a lot of time when you are looking for something specific.
The Mining Company searches the web for you, and collects good resources at a single site. This can cut down your search time significantly. The two sites above are for the Elementary Education and ESL/Bilingual pages.
