Grok: To understand thoroughly and intuitively. Instagrok is an intelligent search engine that improves independent learning on any topic. It retrieves information from around the web but goes one step further by helping you navigate your way through the results, identifying and rating the difficulty of important concepts and creating review quizzes. It also displays concept definitions and the relationships between concepts in the left column. Be sure to watch the video for information on using Instagrok.

In the Classroom

Use this search engine to find information about important concepts and focus on student learning. Encourage students to "grok" any concept or term they encounter to gain a general sense of what they will learn. Display a "grok" of every unit topic as you begin the unit and use this visual display for students to access prior knowledge and make observations about what they see. Place a link on your class site, wiki, or blog for easy access or on a classroom computer for quicker searching. Demonstrate how to use this search engine on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Use this tool to save students' time while researching.
