Here's a four minute instructional video from the always clever Richard Byrne.   I could see this as a find blended learning activity.  Have your students create their research notes with Google Slides.  Use this video to show them how to do it. 


Flip that classroom folks! 

Marian Royal Vigil's curator insight, June 4, 2014 2:42 PM

This is not outstanding, but does a pretty good job of explaining how to use Google Slides in the research process.  It would be good for teachers to view.  I don't think it's polished enough to use with students.

Google Docs & Research: How-To?

Google Docs & Research: How-To? | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

When students are doing research, they sometimes struggle with citing their sources or moving beyond a quick search with Google.com. The Google Docs Research Pane helps to facilitate searching for and citing sources. By going to Tools –> Research, the Research Pane pops up on the right hand side! You can search Google, images, scholar, quotes, and dictionary! By dragging and dropping certain content (e.g. images), not only will the material appear, but a footnote (in MLA, Chicago, or APA format).

Using Google’s Advanced Image Search Features (4:35) | Under Ten Minutes | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

In an effort to stem teacher apprehension about letting students at the elementary level just “google” their image, Fred Koch created this screencast on the features of Google Advanced Image Search. In particular, this tutorial points to the importance of citing images, finding images which are ‘labeled for reuse’ and examining the SafeSearch options.

Distracted By Google Search? 4 “Search Engines” You Should Not Ignore

Distracted By Google Search? 4 “Search Engines” You Should Not Ignore | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
An upstart search engine some 20-something has developed in a Silicon Valley garage? A search engine that could take little bites at Google's leviathan footprints? Hardly. Though, the second part of the above is coming true. But let's dissuade you from the hype of trying out some new-fangled search engine that has recently been unveiled.…

The Future of Search May Not Be About Google: It's You In The End Who Will Decide

The Future of Search May Not Be About Google: It's You In The End Who Will Decide | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
There is a evil side of Google which revealed itself in the Filter Bubble, invasion of privacy, the lack of transparency, in the monopoly induction of behavior and especially in what is happening in the search environment.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, January 13, 2014 5:58 AM

People who use Google are given the impression that they are interacting with the data out there, but they are actually interacting with Google and its view of the world.

 

"They are prediction engines that constantly refine a theory about who you are and what you are going to do or want next. Together, they create an universe of data for each one of us."

"In a 2010 paper published in the Scientific American journal, Tim Berners-Lee warned about companies developing ever more “closed” products and “data islands”.

"Morville, in his book Search Patterns, says that the first and second results receive 80% of attention. The vertical approach suggests to the user the idea of a single result that fully answers the question, enclosing possibilities and preventing alternative realization."


Or in other words, is our acceptance of what we see in search results eroding our ability (or willingness) to consider alternatives and employ critical thinking?

Lucy Beaton's curator insight, January 16, 2014 8:21 PM

This is alarming.  We, as Teacher Librarians, need to be aware of the ramifications of this.

Mrs. Dilling's curator insight, February 13, 2014 11:52 AM

My favorite statement, "we must always be aware and well informed about the intentions of companies, and never stop having multiple options for any service."

 

This article was an eye opener for me. I had never questioned Google before.
