Here at abcteach, we’ve just launched a big upgrade to our search tool that will make finding the perfect teaching activity much easier. Here’s a rundown of the main improvements:
1. More Relevant – Our search algorithm has been improved, and results are now more relevant to your searched keywords.
2. More Visual – Results are now viewable in Thumbnail or List view, giving you quick access to a large document preview (click the icon next to a search result), related categories, and more.
3. More Control – We’ve added dropdown menus that filter your results, helping you find exactly what you need for your class or homeschool. You can easily filter results to specific categories (Math, Reading, etc.) and file types (PDF, Notebook, Flipchart, etc.). With the Clip Art on/off toggle, you can control whether or not to include images in your search.
4. More Advanced – With the advanced controls, viewable by pressing the “Advanced” on/off toggle, you can search for a specific phrase or exclude keywords from your results. If you’re a power user and want even more control over your results, our search now supports Boolean search operators.
To find that special activity for your class, try abcteach’s search tool for yourself. You’ll find the search bar on the top right corner of any page on abcteach or the Member’s Site (members.abcteach.com). For a visual run through of the new features, watch the search tutorial below.
