English teacher Amanda Crabtree, from Lucasville, OH shares how #INFOhioWorks for her students at Valley High School.
“As a 17-year teaching veteran, I have watched INFOhio grow and continue to provide a safe, reliable, and credible site for students and teachers. In the ever-changing world of technology, it is difficult to help students learn how to do credible research. INFOhio provides the means to help our students learn how to research—a skill that will help them and is vital in post-secondary studies. Without this, students tend to blindly search the Internet, which we know is full of false, and sometimes dangerous information. My high school English students use INFOhio’s Points of View and the Academic Search Premier for the majority of their assignments.”
“We have lost so many resources due to tight budgets, making us appreciate even more the INFOhio resources, which are free to our district.”
