15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers

Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow. While I understand there’s a LOT more to research than just Googling, it’s important to note that this is where nearly all students start their research.

Check out the useful Lesson Plan Map too to see how all these lessons fit together and what skills they teach.

Ten social media commandments for kids & parents

(Yea, neither do I but we will talk about that later….) As parents we are told we should talk with our kids about difficult topics like alcohol, drugs, sex and pornography. Today’s generation has a new topic to add to the list. Social Media.

- Get to Know "Google: Good to Know"

Though "Family Safety Center" is a "subcategory" on the page, it is a "goldmine" of useful information. However, the section I appreciate the most on this page is the "More Resources" section. No resource page would be complete without Common Sense Media (in my opinion) and it's included with plenty of other great sites.
