Literacy in the Age of Google
In this episode, Google research scientist Daniel Russell discusses what it means to be literate in the Age of Google. He demonstrates some of Google’s powerful search capabilities that many people are unaware of, and talks about his MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) titled “Power Searching with Google” that drew over 275,000 registered students in two presentations. Daniel Russell previously worked at Xerox Parc where the graphical user interface was invented, and was in the Advanced Technology Group at Apple. His work at Google involves studying how people search for and organize information, and using that knowledge to produce better search quality and more user satisfaction. Martin Wasserman hosts.
