Google Search

In my opinion, this is the most useful slideshow you will view in my class since you will use it the most.

Open a new email to WordPress with the subject Technology Tutorial 1 - Google Search. On the first line type [category technology] and below it, number 1-5 and answer the following in blue below:

  1. View the slideshow to learn how to Google Search more efficiently. Google is an essential class tool you will use everyday, which is why memorizing how to search is so important. Write in the email which search tip was most useful.

  2. Then view this infographic (click on image to zoom in) which summarizes some of the content you just learned from the slideshow. Write in the email one interesting thing you learned.

  3. Go to http://data-arts.appspot.com/globe-search which is an up to date graph showing the number of live searches going on in the world. Write in the email one city from the map that has a high usage of Google searches and take a screenshot of it from the display.

  4. Go to http://www.wdyl.com and type one thing you really like (e.g. photography, art, boxing, traveling, China, etc). Check out the results and take a screenshot of the page. Attach the screenshot to the email.

  5. Check out the Google Doodles. Take a screenshot of your favorite one and attach it to the email.

  6. Watch the video to learn about Google's new search feature. What is one thing you would like to search for using the new nose feature?
Send the email to WP and post the link to the spreadsheet.
