Week 5, Thing #12, Roll Your Own Search Tool

The only thing I found frustrating about this task was waiting for the search roll to come up. The site can be extremely slow. I do see how a search tool like this can be used by a teacher to cover a particular unit of study. As a science teacher, I created a search roll on various websites used to study the human body sytems. t would be a great reinforcement tool for students during that particular unit of study.

    I definitely agree that the slowness of the Rollyo site is a huge downfall. The concept of Rollyo is great. Teachers and librarians can add safe and reliable sites that students can search to work on assignments or projects. However, many students may find it hard to use because of wait time. Hopefully this is something that is being worked on!
