  • Tasha Bergson-Michelson: We teach Search because Google is this wealth of tools to be used

  • for finding and making sense of the information and ideas that you can find on the web. But

  • what we discovered through our work, is that most people only know about a small fraction

  • of these tools.

  • Susan Geiger: Librarians have always taught Search, but it's changed now in that we have

  • such an incredible amount of information available to us.

  • Anne Arriaga: We're able to help kids move from a very overwhelming search to a search

  • that's more manageable.

  • female #4: How many of you guys use Google? That's right. Everyone does, right?

  • female #5: All right. So, today we're gonna be teaching you guys some effective ways to

  • research and search things in Google.

  • male #1: Who can give a class that maybe the dates would be helpful with? What would you

  • use it with? Give me an example.

  • female #6: History.

  • male #1: History. How?

  • female #6: So like, if you don't know the name of it, you can find it with the time.

  • male #1: Perfect.

  • female #4: So, I'm gonna go to the custom range right here and go to July 1st through

  • now. And what this is gonna do is it's gonna give me all of the articles and all the information

  • from July 1st to now.

  • Susan Geiger: Technology has totally transformed our job. We used to deal primarily with print.

  • And now, our students need to be literate in not only print, but they also need to be

  • visually literate.

  • male #2: Let's say we wanna see like, an action shot from like a game or maybe a field. So,

  • what color would you primarily see like in action shots? So, it's probably gonna be green

  • because they're on the field, right? So, we can go down here and click "green." So, now

  • we can see action shots of people on the field.

  • Tasha Bergson-Michelson: We know that educators are awfully busy and that they really need

  • training on their own schedule. So, we provide a lot of online tools--webinars and lesson

  • plans and things that educators can access and use at their own time, in their own pace.

  • Anne Arriaga: The new digital divide is those that are able to search and those that aren't

  • able to search. It's about critical thinking skills. It's about being independent learners.

  • And we need to make sure that we cultivate these skills within our students, so that

  • when they go out into the world after high school, whether it's college, career, life,

  • they will know how to search and be able to be critical thinkers.
