Please feel free to pass this on to any K-12 educators in the DC area.
The Google Search Education program is offering an in-person, hands-on
version of our popular class: "Beyond the First Five Links: Using the
Left-Hand Panel to Reveal the Good Stuff." If you're in the DC area
on March, 22, 2011, consider signing up!
Looking for new ways to motivate students to look beyond the first
five links in a search engine?
Learn how Google's left-hand panel helps you sort and filter search
results in ways that reveal compelling new sources, even without
formulating complex queries. We take on a simple research assignment,
with hands-on practice, to discover how these tools encourage students
to both engage with new forms of data visualization and explore the
best resources, whether they come from the print or electronic world.
The class includes lots of time for Q&A and discussion.
When: Tues Mar 22, 2011, 4:30 to 6:30pm
Where: Computer Lab at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library.
(The Main Branch of the DC Public Library)
