Googling

I'm going to go out on a limb here and make BOLD statement.

Ready for it?

"Teaching students HOW to Google is one of the top 3 skills you should teach in a given school year."

The other 2, in my opinion- in case you are interested:
-  How to have a perfect conversation/work in groups/work with peers, etc.
-  How to use technology in a responsible way.
-  How to Google effectively.

From Google Search Education website:
"Web search can be a remarkable tool for students, and a bit of instruction in how to search for academic sources will help your students become critical thinkers and independent thinkers."

This thought led me to this video.  Top 10 Google Search Tips and Tricks.


I wonder how you can teach a 3rd grader how to Google like a pro?  Or, perhaps they already do!
