12 Ways To Use Google Search In School, By Degree Of Difficulty | Edudemic - 33 views

  •  
    From the site: "I've been completely obsessed with Google's new mini-site devoted to finding better ways to incorporate proper web searches into the classroom. Dubbed 'Search Education,'Google's new site has an array of lesson plans, videos (check a sample out below), concept maps, and other tools designed to help any educator properly integrate Google." This is just the logical next step for the search (and basically everything else) behemoth as Google pushes its way into the classroom. As part of Search Education, Google has shared a bunch of lesson plans that are organized by degree of difficulty. So, if you consider yourself and / or your students Google experts, you should try out the more advanced plans. If you don't know what 'boolean' means, then you probably should start with the more basic stuff. The following are just some of the many lesson plans brought to you by Google. Check out the site for more info!
