How many times have you heard, ‘Just Google it!’ Google holds a large share of the search engine market. The word “Google” and the word “research” are often interchangeable in a students’ world.
In this webinar we will explore why Google is the dominant search engine, how Google works, where a search fits within the inquiry process & the essential skills that scaffold a search. I will share search secrets that allow students to be more specific with their search and the results this produces. If privacy issues are of concern, I will also address the need for having reliable alternative sites for your students.
This webinar will help you to:
- initiate inquiry through effective search questions,
- identify search tips that are relevant and helpful,
- access resources to support ‘search’ at different age levels.
