Being able to use Google (and/or other search engines) effectively is a skill that all learners need to develop as early as possible.
The lesson plans available on Google Search Education might not fit every learning situation, but at the very least they provide a great framework for teaching search strategies and evaluating information found on the web.
The lesson plans are arranged according to skill level in five categories. Those categories are...
- picking search terms,
- understanding results,
- narrowing results,
- searching for evidence, and
- evaluating credibility of sources.
