Jane, Thanks for pointing me to this. It's a great example of how to tackle one of the new basic skills of the early 21st Century. In fact many adults could do with using tools like this to better understand how to search well, critique and filter the results. See my post on Knowledge Loses its Luster that comments on what Susan Jacoby, author of "The Age of American Unreason", observes as two worrying trends among younger people: anti-intellectualism (the belief that "too much learning can be a dangerous thing") and anti-rationalism (the idea that "there is no such things as evidence or fact, just opinion"). Tools like Boolify will help us all learn to use online content in more sophisticated and objective ways.
