Google And You

Digital and Information Literacy

It has become almost impossible to imagine a world without Google, the most popular and powerful Internet search engine that as revolutionized the way we seek and locate information. This book seeks to show students how to get the most out of Google--with its search engine, maps, videos, news, docs, and email features--when working on school projects, research papers, and multimedia presentations. Google helps users navigate through this bewildering universe of knowledge, but this book will provide readers with a greater degree of guidance, showing them how to harness Google's various abilities to locate exactly what they're looking for. Discussions of online netiquette--including the avoidance of cyberbullying, plagiarism, and inappropriate content--round out the discussion.
