Center Ideas – Google a Day

Sometimes it’s difficult coming up with ideas for centers that make good use of technology. We often fall back on flash card apps and sites that don’t challenge our students or give them any control over their learning.

Google a Day is probably best used with older or gifted students. The premise is so simple I’m surprised Google didn’t think of it sooner. Each day, Google poses a question and times the user to see how long he/she takes to find it using Google. The question remains in a frame at the bottom of the screen as you search and hints are available for the easily frustrated and answers can be revealed when you’re stumped.
