Cool? Or creepy?

Well, you can decide.

It’s the season for that guy with the white beard.  You see him in the malls and kids are asking him questions all over the place.

You might want to right click and open the results in a new window to view the original image.  But, in the primary wheel, you’ll see the how, when, why, where, … as organizers.

From each of the “spokes” in the wheel are a clickable link to a specific Google search.  So, you may not have thought of this but if you click on the results “how to email justin trudeau”, you’ll get all kinds of suggestions specifically related to that question.  Give it a try; you know you want to.

I’ll admit to being a bit freaked out at first.  I’m worried about who might be looking over my shoulder as I search and now there’s this guy in front of me too.  But, the results definitely took me to places I’d never searched before.

For those students who need a bit of digital help for their inquiry activities or just room to expand their thinking when online, this might turn out to be very useful.
