Google Extended

Tuesday 25th May 9:00-12:15
Google Extended

It's highly likely that you are already familiar with the Google search engine (
In this session we will take a closer look at some of the not so well known search functions in Google and some of the strategies that could make you and your students better searchers. (researchers)

Google, though, is now much more than just a search engine ... we will also cover some of the other Google applications that are available to educators.

In particular we will look at Google Docs which allows you (your students) to set up free collaborative Word documents and Spreadsheets online.

In addition you will be shown places to find free (legal) resources for students to use (images, videos and sound files) .... and how to copyright your own resources.

Hi, my name is Jenny Uther and I work as a teacher librarian at Monte Sant Angelo Mercy College which is a girls' secondary school. I am interested in deep Google searching, not only for the students, but also for the staff. I know very little about Google Docs nad would like to see the potential it has for collaborative work.
