Google-Assisted “Search� Learning…but pls don’t say “according to Google�

Google as a Communicative Tool: Gmail, (Google’s email program) together with Google Talk (instant messenger and internet telephony service) allow learners to email, save, print and email text chats and can be used to display presence of a learner. Preferences allow you to change your availability and give others an idea of your current status (online, offline, away, do not disturb, etc.). Google Gears allows learners to view content from Google Reader offline.
