Quixote Media’s mission is to help educators teach students how to use digital resources effectively, safely, and responsibly.
SweetSearch2Day curates the World Wide Web for students and educators. It creates and synthesize Web Guides and articles drawn from credible, high-quality and trustworthy resources..
Each piece, whether a Web Guide, a Beyond the Headlines story or a Netcetera article, receives the same meticulous research. The Web sites included in each piece are connected through original narrative, providing users with information on each site before they even click on it.
SweetSearch is a Search Engine for Students.
SweetSearch searches only the 35,000 Web sites that our staff of research experts and librarians and teachers have evaluated and approved when creating the content on SweetSearch2Day (and it’s predecessor site findingDulcinea).
We constantly evaluate our search results and “fine-tune” them, by increasing the ranking of Web sites from organizations such as the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian, PBS and university Web sites.
SweetSearch helps students find outstanding information, faster. It enables them to determine the most relevant results from a list of credible resources, and makes it much easier for them to find primary sources. We exclude not only obvious spam sites, but also marginal sites that read well, but lack academic or journalistic rigor. As importantly, the very best Web sites that are often buried on other search engines appear on the first page of SweetSearch results.
