Post: Kansas K-12 Teacher/Student Search Engine- I need your Help!
Posted by Wayne Campbell on 10/09/07
Please forward this to all the Kansas educators that you
I would like to invite you all to participate in a project
(the Kansas K-12 Teacher - Student Search Engine) that I
have been working on in my spare time. Here are the
This search engine is for Kansas educators and students.
It's purpose is to create a safe search engine that
provides relevant search results for Kansas teachers and
students. This search engine only contains sites
submitted by our contributors and our contributors are
comprised only of Kansas K-12 Teachers, Administrators and
the occasional Tech Guy (like me). By using this search
engine you receive only HIGH QUALITY search results, and
not a bunch of junk that needs to be sifted through. Have
you ever had a student use a unreliable source from a web
page that they found online? I hear about this all the
time and it is just one of the reasons I started this
project. The Kansas K-12 Teacher - Student Search Engine
provides search results from several thousand educational,
school district and Kansas specific web sites and it is
growing more every day!
Please consider contributing to this project. It's easy to
do.. Just go HERE -
http://www.clancampbell.us/school/kansas.htm and click on
the "Volunteer to Contribute" link, sign in or make a new
Google account, and follow the directions. I will have to
approve you before you can submit any sites, so to make my
life easier, please only use your school e-mail address.
That way I can verify you are not a spammer.
If you contribute to this project, please only add sites
that have a valid educational or professional development
use. Please also submit sites that are specifically
relevant to education in Kansas. KSDE.ORG is a good
example, but specific USD web sites are acceptable as well.
So, I am contacting you because I need your help in 3
ways. First and formost, I need teachers to contribute to
the project, by submitting high quality educational sites
to the search engine. If nothing else, It would be
helpful if you submitted the sites that you yourself or
your students use in your classroom. Any site that
teachers, administrators, students use in their everyday
educational life should be submitted. Everything from
Professional Development sites to sites that teach the
ABC's are acceptable.
Second, It would be helpful, if you would forward this e-
mail to teachers that you know in other school districts
in Kansas. The more people that participate the more
valuable this Search Engine becomes..
Third, USE IT! The Kansas K-12 Teacher - Student Search
Engine has not been around that long, but it already
contains several thousand educational websites. The more
we use it and the more you contribute to it, the better
and more relevant it will become!
(about me: I am the network admin for USD 447 and all
around tech guy. This project is just too big to try to
accomplish for my school alone, so I decided to make it a
personal project for all Kansas K-12 teachers and
students. I hope you find it worth while!)
