A Google a Day: Day 3 ISTE 2012

Here is a picture of the Google booth in the exhibit hall that provided visitors short tutorials on how Google Apps and Chromebooks can be used to help teachers effectively deliver instruction, organize student work, and have students use them to express their knowledge and skills. 

The Google booth also were giving out free A Google a Day books. A Google a Day is a search-engine trivia game where Google asks questions that you need to answer through Google Search, which will lead you to the ultimate answer. According to the book, this 50 minute activity helps develop student online research skills. 

The picture about shows a question on the right with a hint if the students are having trouble with the question. The next page provides an answer, and background information that could lead to classroom discussion. If you are interested in lesson plans or live-training videos on online searching, please visit g.co/searchedu

For Korea International School teachers, a Google booth representative filled my bag with these books so please contact me for one (14 total).
