Use Google to identify professional organizations in the Education field. Why? Because professional organizations’ websites are great places to go for reliable and credible information!
Try a Google search for:
professional organizations for ______________
The ‘blank’ could be……
teachers, educators, elementary teachers, high school teachers, etc.
In fact, before you even finish typing, Google will give suggestions based on past users’ searches. How cool is THAT?!
Tired of Google's overkill? Tame it! Use the site: operator! Here's how:
Type site:gov OR site:org OR site:edu
Then add your search terms to make Google only give you back results from government, organizational, or college/university sites.
