How Does Google Autocomplete EdTech Terms?


Did you all see the image online about each state’s biggest stereotype, according to Google’s autocomplete feature in search? If you missed it, here’s the image from the Huffington Post.

So of course, me being me, I got curious about what Google autocomplete would say about some of the terms that I write about. So I took a look at my most commonly used tags. Which of these stereotypes do you find yourself agreeing with?

  • Why is Android so….slow
  • Why is Apple so…popular
  • Why are apps so…popular
  • Why is iTunes so…slow
  • Why is behavior so…hard to change
  • Why are kids so…annoying
  • Why are classrooms so…cold
  • Why is education so…important
  • Why are teachers so…mean
  • Why is implementation so…difficult
  • Why is iOS so…smooth
  • Why is the iPad so…expensive
  • Why is learning so…hard
  • Why is mobile so…important
  • Why is psychology so…popular
  • Why is special education so…special
  • Why are students so…lazy
  • Why is technology so…addictive

I personally like the special education one…lol. Which are your favorites and do you have some to add to the list?
