To Google or not to Google...that is the question. I fall on the side of teaching students how to use other search engines for a number of reasons including tracking and filter bubbles. This post explores seven academic search engines. 
A short description of each search engine is provided as well as links to each. There is also a link to an earlier post that looked at 100 databases and search indexes.

80 Ways To Use Google Forms In Your Classroom

80 Ways To Use Google Forms In Your Classroom | Education 'n Technology | Scoop.it

Google Apps are some of the most widely used tools in education today. From Gmail to Calendar to Image Search, they’re a big part of the current education technology model. In my experience, I don’t see enough written about how to use Google Docs / Drive in the classroom. This extremely powerful tool can do so much and it’s all free. Lucky for all of us, Tom Barrett has built a crowdsourced Google Doc (of course) of more than 80 ways to use the forms part of Google Drive in the classroom!
