Choosito, the National Science Foundation (NSF) funded student search engine is transforming the way students, teachers, and librarians get access to quality digital resources that deepen their understanding
Choosito provides high quality digital resources that are filtered by reading level and subject area. Students can search the entire web or an educator-approved library with over 200,000 resources.
The artificial intelligence behind Choosito came from a multi-year research effort led by Dr. Eleni Miltsakaki, a computational linguist at the University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Education (ranked #3 by US News and World Report).
Teachers can make and share their own searchable collections. Collections can be created for specific class projects or used to enhance the common core curriculum throughout the school year.
Choosito allows teachers to add their classes and track how students search. This data is essential to helping students improve how they navigate the web.
Choosito offers built-in tools to help students write citations and evaluate resource quality. These time saving tools also help students become better researchers.
