  85. 85. The Art of Search Sunday, April 10, 2011
  86. 86. Organizing a Search • What is it I’m looking for? (think about common keywords) • How would someone else talk about it? (what words would they use? how would THEY describe it?) • Which of those terms would be most common? • Which of those terms would be very specialized to this topic? • What kind of thing would make me happy? (do I want a single web page, a definition, a collection, an image.... or … ?) Sunday, April 10, 2011
  87. 87. Keyword Choice • Think about what you are trying to find • Choose words that you think will appear on the page • Put yourself in the mindset of the author of those words • Use synonyms • Start broad and use just a few words, then go deep • Use contextual terms Sunday, April 10, 2011
  88. 88. Other Search Tips • Use specifiers • Example: [Oregon population wikipedia] • Try an image search when normal means fail, you might find something that will be useful or spark your interest in a different way. • Word order matters—when it’s not working one way, try another. • When searching for common phrases, don’t leave out the “stop words.” (e.g., [ Lord of the Rings] ) • Use double quotes to find a particular sequence of words • Example:“Daniel M Russell” or “Ursula K Le Guin” Sunday, April 10, 2011
  89. 89. Help • Google Search Basics • Advanced Search Tips • Explore Google Search • Google Guide Quick Reference Sunday, April 10, 2011
  90. 90. Conclusion • Plan on learning new skills. • Nothing stays constant on the web. • Search engines are continually improving. • New search tools are always being developed • Make research to be a part of everything that you do in the classroom.Teach and model this attitude to your students. • Help students and colleagues develop a research stance across content areas using News, Scholar, and Book Search. • Encourage your school or district to adopt search tools and strategies globally.
