This succinct video can help students in  visualize how a search engine works to not only retrieve results for a personal query, but how the search engine process works to index the whole Internet.


Here is a complete mini-course/lesson plan pack from Google which can help students understand how to retrieve the types of results they are looking for, relying on themselves, not the computer to be the guide throughout their research. These lessons are a great way to break up your day-to-day curriculum and infuse some much-need research guidance for our students. This would work for any  course in the middle or upper divisions.
