Are you surprised by how many people donâ€™t know how to search? Apparently Google is, and they are working to help fix that with an educational program. Itâ€™s geared for educators, but that doesnâ€™t mean every day, Real Peopleâ€ can learn from the lessons they provide. Itâ€™s called â€œGoogle Search Educationâ€ and is available here.
There is even a video series of lessons available for you. Â The first video is “Even Better Search” and starts with some of the easiest, yet often overlooked, search tools found on the left side of the Google search page. For instance, searching in images using color selection, and selecting by date ranges.
To get you started on their videos, I am embedding the first one here, but you will definitely want to go see the other training videos available.
