We  are currently learning how to correctly search for things with Google. I am glad we are doing this because I have learned a lot of new things about searching with Google. All these lessons are very helpful and they come in handy. We also take notes in class on the videos we watch and then we do activites based on that video lesson.
     One of the things I have learned from Google Search that is very helpful is using the CTRL-F button to find things on a website. Using Control F helps you find your information faster and it saves you time. When you click Control-F, there will be a little bar where you can type in what you are searching for. Then it searches your query for you. It also gives you the number of results the words that you typed in the page. CTRL-F is very helpful and I know I will be using it a lot. 
     Another things I have learned from this progam is using the minus sign to exclude the information you don't want. This also comes in handy because it takes you directly to the specific information you want. It prevents you from wasting time searching for something that doesn't involve with the thing you are searching for. For example, if I wanted to learn about Halloween, I would type that into my query. I only want the know the orgin of it. I know that Halloween involves costumes, decorations, fun activites, etc, but that's not what I'm searching for. So in the query, I would type in Halloween orgin -costumes -decorations because costumes and decorations is not what I am searching for. That would directly take me to pages that involve the orgin of Halloween.
     There are many things I have learned from Google Search, but these things stood out the most to me.
