Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This might come in handy if you are in one of many schools around the country that doesn't have a reading specialist available to work with students.

A Google-a-Day Puzzle for Jan. 3 - Wired

A Google-a-Day Puzzle for Jan. 3 - Wired | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

"Our good friends at Google run a daily puzzle challenge and asked us to help get them out to the geeky masses. Each day’s puzzle will task your googling skills a little more, leading you to Google mastery. Each morning at 12:01 a.m. Eastern time you’ll see a new puzzle posted here.

SPOILER WARNING:
We leave the comments on so people can work together to find the answer. As such, if you want to figure it out all by yourself, DON’T READ THE COMMENTS!

Also, with the knowledge that because others may publish their answers before you do, if you want to be able to search for information without accidentally seeing the answer somewhere, you can use theGoogle-a-Day site’s search tool, which will automatically filter out published answers, to give you a spoiler-free experience."

I've used Google Forms before and found them a bit counter-intuitive. This refresh should help.

Why K-12 schools are failing by not teaching SEARCH | The Thinking Stick

Why K-12 schools are failing by not teaching SEARCH | The Thinking Stick | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

A look at the importance of teaching students how to search. Do your students (or faculty) know how to find information online? Do they have use appropriate search words, understand how results are generated, use multiple resources, to assess the information (quality and accuracy), recognize bias? 

This post focuses on some of the  information from the recent Pew Report that looked at "How Teens Do Research in the Digital World." The author also provides links to articles he has written on how to use Google to teach search to students in K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. 
I would also suggest teaching with search engines beyond Google. If you are concerned with tracking check out DuckDuckGo or Blekko. A great metasearch engine is Carrot2. And you can use want to compare websites side-by-side check out Slikk.
