There is no doubt that Google has taken advantage of the needs that this pandemic has brought to work piecemeal and offer a variety of web-based tools and resources for different sectors of society, focusing especially on those groups that have been forced to carry out your activities remotely.
Now, the company has shared both the new educational resources and the improvement of the capacities of the existing educational resources in the Searches, highlighting especially the ability to offer the resolution of mathematical equations step by step, with detailed explanations for better understanding.
A strong push in remote education from Google Searches
In general, these educational resources from Searches are available in English globally, although from Google They are committed to expanding support for other languages, although in the case of solving mathematical equations, the company points out that explanations are currently available for more than 70 different languages.
These are the Five new features about educational resources in Google Search:
For starters, Google notes that students who search among the more than 2,000 STEM concepts will have access to overviews for educational purposes, accompanied by examples and videos available throughout the web.
In addition, it has a new interactive function that will allow students to test your knowledge of mathematics, chemistry and physics based on practical problem searches for these subjects.
For this function, Google will offer resources from organizations such as BBC Bitesize, Byjus, Careers360, Chegg, CK12, Education Quizzes, GradeUp, Great Minds, Kahoot !, OpenStax, Toppr, Vedantu, among others.
But if it wasn’t enough, Google too relies on 3D augmented reality for mobiles to enable the visualization of more than 200 concepts in chemistry, biology, physics and anatomy in the rooms of the students themselves.
For the solving equations, Google notes that users will be able to start by typing them in the search bar or by capturing a photo with the Lens application to provide step-by-step explanations, although they promise that they will increase support for more types of mathematical equations in collaboration with Symbolab , Mathway and Tiger Algebra.
And finally, he points out that in the coming weeks, Searches will be able to offer detailed explanations for specific questions and equivalents where they will address the complexities of issues related to STEM, making it easier to take understanding “to the next level.”
