DIGITAL LITERACY – 5. Using Search Engines

What is a search engine?

Search engines are special websites that make it easy for you to find a website or page in an instant. Popular search engines include Google, Yahoo! and Bing.

Each search engine works in a similar way. If you go to a search engine’s homepage, you’ll find a single box. You simply type whatever you want to search for into that box.​​​​​​​

Search engines are a great way to find things on the web. If you search carefully you can find reliable and trustworthy information.
