This is the second post in a series of posts covering some of the best search engines available online for our students. The common point between all these search tools is that they are very secure and adult content free . Although we can never trust any technological tool one hundred percent , the algorithm used by these engine’s filters is highly sophisticated and have already proved its efficacy . As I said before , when it comes to students /kids using internet , the human intervention is highly recommended .

Kidsclick is a web search side designed for kids by librarians with kid friendly results. This is indeed a very good site for students that I insisted to include here though it has the following warning. “ kids click is not an internet filter . It does not prevent client web browsers from being used to surf any URL address that the user inputs . It is intended to guide users to good sites , not block them from “bad” sites. However, it could be used in conjunction with a filter product where law allows filters to be used .
Yahoo!kids is an online searchable directory of interesting sites for kids . The sites included here are constantly checked by educational experts to make sure the content and links are appropriate for kids aged 7-12. Next to its directory , Yahoo:kids has some fun features like :
