A search engine with a difference!

I've just found Sortfix. What a great tool to guide children through how to form an effective web search! This would be great to use in the classroom or at home.

Watch the demo video first, and learn how to type in a search word, and then have Sortfix help you decide which 'power words' to use to narrow down your search. Drag the words you need, into the 'Add to Search' Box; and the words you don't want, into the 'Remove' Box. You will be able to see how these words are added to, or removed from, your original words in the main search box. Then Sortfix finds the search results for you!

Definitely worth looking at, to learn how to use key words and different search terms to search more effectively.
