There’s a tsunami brewing in the Pacific, and several classes are working on a project to track its movement. They have one class period to research and report. Ready? Go! But wait…where do they begin? Can anything be done to help them find information more quickly and directly?

Here’s an idea to make you a hero in your school. Gale widgets. They can give your students and teachers a shortcut to research on hot topics and ensure that content searched is trusted and relevant.

In simple terms, a widget is an image (icon) with a search text-box, where a word or words can be entered to lead users directly to relevant results. Widgets can shortcut searches by linking users to the most relevant digital content about a given topic.
