1. Google creates the illusion of accessibility]

2. Google naturally suggests “answers” as stopping points

10 Strategies To Encourage Digital Natives To Value Information

It sounds counter-intuitive, but periodically create information-scarce circumstances that force students to function without it.Illuminate—or have them illuminate—the research process itself.Do entire projects where the point is not the information, but its utility.Use think-alouds to model the thinking process during research.Create single-source research assignments where students have to do more with less.Change the assignment mid-course by demanding new resources other than those most accessible.Create the need for “open-ended data” they can’t possibly Google.Have them create a visual metaphor, analogy, or concept map before and after the research process that demonstrates the role that Google, and Google-sourced information, played.Have students create a concept-map or other clever characterization for the limits of Google (or any other search engine).Use a balance of both post primary and secondary sources.
