Some excellent features that I wasn't aware of.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, May 5, 2:15 AM

Here are fourteen great reasons to make Google your primary search engine.  I use the google search bar for a variety of teaching and mathematical apps (I'm an amateur radio operator), including the graphing/math calculator, conversion calculators, scheduling apps, song lyrics, and even booking tickets for flights without a fee. You'll find google to be a ready reference source, ranging from where to eat a good meal to getting flight information for that overdue vacation.  Aloha, Russ.

World of Wonders.

Culture really is very important to share with our kiddos.

Are we curating our own culture reliably? With thought?

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 | Daring Ed Tech | 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.

OK this looks interesting but is also slightly disquieting at the same time. At first blush Now could be useful in drawing together information about your day however it's the underlying awareness and aggregation of what might otherwise be sensitive information about yourself that has potential for mischief or worse. Ah well with every advance comes the potential for misadventure or worse. What do others think?
