Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. It is that time of year. Searches for back to school supplies are up 450 percent over the last few weeks according to Google. The company’s Christina Basilio says there are plenty of searches as well for info on specific subjects like physics and biology…with kids asking if the courses are hard. Of course they are…but Google has tools that can help..
“What we’re seeing is that word problems aren’t just for math anymore and Google Search and Google Lens are two great ways to help them maybe try to understand those difficult concepts a little bit better. You can either go directly to the Google Search bar or click on the scan it image item on the search bar to access Google Lens, and what you’ll end up getting is a step by step breakdown on how to solve that problem.”
Google has other tools as well for both parents and teachers.
