, Internet Trainer and Independent Consultant
, Online Searcher magazine

Search experts Phil Bradley and Marydee Ojala lead Internet Librarian International's first Search Slam. They challenge delegates to share their teaching techniques regarding online searching. Both adult learners and younger students need to be taught to understand how search works, what Boolean logic is, when to use advanced search syntax, and why they should do anything other than enter one word in a search box. This requires considerable creativity on the part of the teacher/trainer. After showing some things that worked for them - and a few that didn’t - they invite comments and examples from those in the room.
