I'd suggest you begin with the Education Research Guide. This guide has information on finding articles, books, requesting materials, citing your sources, and more.

Click on the yellow tab "Finding Articles and Online Databases", and you'll see a list of the best article databases for Education, such as Education Full-Text, Professional Development Collection, etc. Click on Education Full-Text.

 At the top of the database page, click on the words "Choose Databases".  This will bring up a window with a list of many other databases you can search at the same time as Education Full-Text.  Check the boxes for Academic Search Premier, ERIC, OmniFile and Professional Development Collection, then click "OK". (see attached file for screenshots)

Break your research topic down into keywords and search, limiting to Full-Text and Scholarly/Peer-reviewed.  This will assure you only get results which are from academic journals and have a link to the complete article.  

Take a look at the attached document Researching an Education Topic for detailed help and screenshots, as well as the links to more information about doing a Literature Review.
