Big Universe - The perfect tool for students and parents to encourage literacy within the family and school.


Michele White

As a classroom teacher, I couldn't have discovered a better resource than Big Universe. I teach students with various learning disabilities. Many of them HATE to read. When I presented them with the opportunity to read using all the technology they love, they were ready jump in. After they realized that Big Universe offered books on topics that actually interested them - hunting, fishing, ATV's, snakes (yes - I teach mostly boys!) - they were hooked! Students who had NEVER met their reading goals were now exeeding their goals by several books. I love that I can assign books individually based on each of my kids needs too. I know what their interests are and their reading levels, so I can assign books that will allow them to be successful. Another positive to using Big Universe is the set up of the books. I really think that my students feel less frustration because, unlike holding a large book, they only see one set of pages at a time. They aren't allowed the opportunity to be overwhelmed. I am very pleased with the program and how it has helped my students become happy, successful readers.

We used netTrekker for our science/English research paper project. It gave the students a more focused search engine. It wasn’t all over the place like Google would have been. No complaints from the students!

We use netTrekker right now as the major search engine for students' research papers, grades 9-12. It is an invaluable resource for safe and appropriate information for their work on class projects as well!

We used netTrekker to research animals and landforms for a unit on the world map. It was great! It is so easy to find information at different readibility levels to match all of my students' needs.

Students and teachers spend more time finding than searching when they use netTrekker. The sources returned from a netTrekker search are valid and credible as well as complete. netTrekker provides multiple ways to search so that students and teachers are able to find what they need and much more. The Dictionary and Read Aloud functions make the information accessible to all students.

NetTrekker allows students access to a wide variety of resources that would otherwise be unavailable to them. Oak Mountain Intermediate students enjoy the ease of use and the wealth of information NetTrekker offers. Parents appreciate that students can access it from home. It is a very frequently used resource in the Library Media Center and in the classrooms.

E-beam…love, love, love! I use it every day. The kids are so excited and that’s all they want to do. I highly recommend it for every teacher in this school! So much fun – the kids don’t even realize they are learning.
