  • 1. Top Ten Googling Tips for Teachers By Michael Gallagher
  • 2. Get a definition
    • Simply type “definition:word” and you’ve got the definition. Great for vocabulary words.
  • 3. Use the image search
    • This is a good tool to use for vocabulary words, if you can find a good comic that illustrates the vocabulary word.
  • 4. Google Desktop
    • Half all your Google tools in a handy nearby place.
  • 5. Right-click to use Save As
    • An easy way to save documents on your computer.
  • 6. Bookmarks Manager
    • Essential for sites you visit regularly.
  • 7. Reopen a closed tab
    • Press “CTRL+SHIFT+T” to reopen a tab closed by mistake. This could save a person like me hours of time.
  • 8. Search full text
    • If you know what you’re looking for, but don’t know exactly where to look, this is great.
  • 9. Advanced book search
    • I can show a specific page of a novel and point out the important quotes for class discussion.
  • 10. Google Scholar
    • Having students use this tool for research projects will result in better quality research.
  • 11. Google Custom Search Engine
    • Assure that students use credible websites by limiting the sites they can use for research with this tool.
