Targeted Resources and Support Tools to Help EVERY Student Succeed
Welcome to January! With the excitement of a new calendar year comes carefully planned preparation for the 2015 testing season. Many of us at Knovation are former educators, and we understand the challenges of implementing test preparation strategies based on your students’ individual needs within your daily lessons. To save time and ease your lesson planning frustration, use netTrekker’s refine search options and built-in literacy support tools to easily target resources to the areas where your students need the most help—reducing the stress of test preparation for everyone!
Use these tips to find the right resources to meet each student’s learning needs!
Use Refine Search to Target Resources
netTrekker provides a refine search button at the top of any Search Result page. This takes you to a menu of choices which make it possible for you to narrow your results by choosing any of the available options. Do you need learning games to give your students extra practice with fractions? What about a video in Spanish to help your ELL student understand the concepts?
The Refine Search menus make it easy to find the exact resources you need to meet the wide range of learning needs in your classroom.
Provide Literacy Support Tools

Simply highlight a passage of text using a mouse to hear the text read aloud through their computer speakers.
- Dictionary/Translation – Simply click on a word on any web resource to read the definition or translate the word into other languages.
