A Googley Game #edtech

Normally, I shy6 away from Google applications for this project simply because it's a bit like shooting fish in a barrel.  But A Google A Day, is an interesting concept Google has come up with.  Every day they ask a different question that you can use their search engine (or any other) to research.  When you think you have an answer, you can submit it.  If you're wrong you can continue to guess, if you're right they will show you how they came up with the answer (AKA what keywords the searched).  If you eventually give up you can still see the answer.  It's a great safe way to teach students how to conduct effective research on the web.
