Earlier today Google announced a new enhancement to the way it displays search results. Now when you search using a fact searching phrase such as “height of Mount Everest” Google will highlight the answer at the top of the search results. This is similar in style to the way Wolfram Alpha handles fact searching phrases.
Applications for Education
The new way that Google displays results for fact searching phrases should save you and your students time when looking for basic information. Rather than having to open a link you will be able to see the answer right in the results list.
