Google Search Education

I just recently discovered this new opportunity provided by Google that provides lesson plans, activities, and live trainings on how to use Google Search correctly.  Using Google has become a crutch for so many students in finding the answers that they need.  It has become both a positive and negative influence in education.  If used correctly, it can be a great tool for students and teachers.  If used incorrectly, it fosters laziness and a lack of understanding in what is a quality website.  

If you are looking for opening week lessons, this would probably be a great starting point.  Each lesson and activity is divided into "Beginner," "Intermediate," and "Advanced."  There are also "Google-A-Day" activities as well that are broken down by subject matter.

You can see the video below that offers more information.
