Looking for a safe online avenue for students to conduct research? Look no further than netTrekker. netTrekker is an Open Education Resource Library from Knovation. netTrekker gives students access to 360,000 digital resources all curated and tagged for easy, safe student searches. There are many options available for searching including keywords, standards, subject areas, grade levels, tools, images, famous people, etc. Students may explore their own resources through netTrekker or classes may be created with specific resources picked by a teacher.
