Something I don't think millennial teachers fully appreciate about GenZ is that googling has gotten a lot harder in the last decade
I don't think I'm crazy, I try finding stuff online now and just *know* that if I googled it in high school the top results would've mostly been .org/.gov sites and a couple cool blogs
now it's all Quizlet, Pinterest, and Khan Academy
or it's some legit site but the links are all dead/use Flash
I’ve been having this same experience
Fwiw I’m an editor at @contingent_mag, we publish stories by historians outside the tenure track:…
To be clear, I don't think this is entirely the fault of Google *or* other websites. It's a feedback loop: Google changes its algorithm, websites hire SEO people to game it, people click the sites, Google figures those are the sites you wanna see
For all the Wikipedia-bashing, have you tried to scroll through an Encyclopedia Brittanica article recently?
