Tech Tip Tuesday – Google Specialized Search

Specialized Search – Part 3

This next set of tips is great to integrate into social studies curriculum. It’ll help your students find primary sources when doing research, and have a better appreciation for just where the events took place.

view:timeline
When you use view:timeline, your results are broken down into chronologically listed dates. You can filter your search to narrow the time period from which you would like to view results.

For example, here is the top of the results page for the query [view:timeline battle of the bulge]:


Notice the filter on the right of the page. Narrowing the search to 1940-1944 will give you these results:


view:map
You can add maps to the search results. [view:map battle of the bulge] will give you a Google Map, with markers that refer to the places listed in the articles in the results. Switch between map, satellite, and hybrid view to give students a better appreciation of the terrain.

Good Luck!
