Google Search has some new search tools that just might make your everyday tasks and searches a little easier. Need a timer to display while your students are taking an assessment?  Type "timer" into Google Search and you will get a simple timer to display.


Another search tool is to type "define:" and a word you would like to define. Google Search will bring up a dictionary with definitions and the ability to hear the word pronounced correctly.


You can also type in a math problem in the Google Search bar to bring up a basic calculator.



My favorite Google Search tool is the unit converter, you can convert money, measurements, temperatures, and more!  Type in "unit converter" or what you want to convert, such as "feet to miles" to bring up this nifty tool.


These are just a few examples of how to use Google Search for everyday tasks, do you have another favorite to share?
