Learn Online with Google and BYJU’S

Google has developed a new search tool in collaboration with BYJU’S (and other EdTech companies) to enhance the online learning experience. Students can now use Google’s search bar to L.E.A.R.N (Look up, Explore, Augment, Review and Navigate). This new feature is currently available in English for S.T.E.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) subjects.

Here is how you can L.E.A.R.N with Google and EdTech like BYJU’S

Look up concepts for educational resources

You can search for math and science concepts to access a plethora of learning resources on the web. Google will suggest helpful videos and a bunch of useful examples on the concepts you searched for.

Here are a few concepts that I tried searching for: Gravitation, Inertia, Electromagnetic Induction, Probability, trigonometry, and Matrices. The overview for the search term ‘gravitation’ for example, shows BYJU’S video on What is gravitation? and the definition of gravity from Wikipedia. I feel this is the best way to start learning any concept.

Explore Tons of Practice Problems

We all know the proverb “Practice makes perfect”, and with Google’s new feature you can practice until you have perfectly understood a concept.

For example, I searched for Newton’s Law. Since I already knew the laws, I clicked on practice problems to see how well I understood the concept. My first set of questions were from BYJU’S, after answering all the questions I can choose to practice more from BYJU’s or answer some more questions from Toppr, Careers 360, Chegg, or BBC.

Augment Your Knowledge with 3D Models

You don’t need a science lab to visualize concepts anymore, all you need is a smartphone. Google uses Augmented reality and/or 3D models to help you visualize almost every science concept.

I tried searching for human skeleton from my phone.

Review Math Problems  

If you ever need help with your math homework, all you need to do is take a picture through the google app (google Lens) or just type the question in the google search bar. Google will find the solution for your math problem and give you step-by-step instructions on how to solve it.

Navigate Complex Problems

You can search any science (or math) related questions, no matter how easy or complex it is, Google will give you the answer. For example, to find out the molarity of a 0.40 Liter solution containing 0.60 moles of NaCl (Sodium Chloride), I just googled the question and found the answer to be 0.24 M, along with the formula and the steps to solve the problem. Pretty Cool huh?

As per Google, more and more resources are being added to help students. Google is working in collaboration with BYJU’S, Symbolab, Mathway, and others to make online learning immersive and engaging.

Features like these from Google and learning resources from EdTech like BYJU’s will definitely help take students’ understanding to the next level.

I may not know everything. But if you give me time and the purpose, I can learn anything.
