Found this beside the printer at one of the schools where I work. If you need to find something on Google how do you find Google? Well, you can always search for it. Then you can print off the results. This might fall under the category of incorrectly assuming students know proper search techniques. I'd bet that half the students in elementary school think that Google has a tremendous amount of information and when you ask them about their internet sources they invariably answer Google. They're quite shocked when I tell them that Google actually has no information even if they do have almost 2 billion results when you search for Google.
