Video of the Week: "Google - Year in Search 2018"

I love the “Year in Search” videos that Google puts out every year highlighting the search trends throughout the year. Check out this year’s video:

Here’s what we’ll be discussing this week after watching this video:

  • How many of the search queries were familiar to you?

  • What percentage of the videos above should people be familiar with in order to be considered engaged citizens?

  • Which event over the course of the past year (whether in this video or not) has been most inspiring to you?

  • Google ends with the message “Good things are worth searching for.” How does that message fit (or not) with the events of the past year?

  • Take a look at some more of the trends. What do you notice? What do you wonder?

  • Try this game based on the search trends of 2018. In my classroom, we’ll be voting by walking to that side of the room.
