“Can You Google?”

Many students lack search skills and their schools are to blame.

. . . apparently too many students rely too heavily on the top search results when doing research, according to: an articlepublished on Inside Higher Ed. This problem is compounded by the finding that most students don’t really know how to conduct searches. Often times they actually ask the search engine questions, which tend to confuse it.

Some of my students seem not to know how much Google offers.
