Ken Morrison's curator insight, October 2, 2013 7:52 PM

I went to a Google Apps For Education Summit last weekend. They did not say much about these changes, but interesting ideas were shared among participants.  

Lenovo Global Social Media Practice's curator insight, October 9, 2013 6:34 AM

It's an important innovation with the Google search algorithm that understands the meaning of the search query rather than simply using the keywords - sometimes called Semantic Search. They have also announced that users can now conduct searches on hashtags.
