Advanced Google Searching for Everyone
The following post provides the materials and process for this professional development session for teachers and students.
This is a guide to do more advanced searching using the Google search engine, we do not dive into all features, but have selected out some especially useful ones. More will be covered in The Fish Bowl for KIS teachers choosing to attend.
This session is activity driven, and begins easy, branching out and dragging more layers into the search. Based on a topic (Ebola Virus), participants take a copy of the Google presentation (as below), select a topic of their own, and then use the presentation as their own workbook, pasting in their search results as they progress.
Bring: Computer or iPad
Preparation: Get a copy of the presentation https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1jL7QheidBc_6DPYPxNnpR39E7Ent7u3DewDCeKUXpdw/edit?usp=sharing
