research methods and undergraduate students

I’ve created a poll, and I’m seeking the feedback of those who teach in higher ed. Consider the following hypothetical situation.

During a class conversation about useful online tools in your field of study, an undergraduate student (a graduating senior) asserts that Google should be acknowledged as the default online tool for students in your discipline to do academic research. And when you suggest otherwise, the student dismisses the idea that students need to be introduced to anything else.

How comfortable are you knowing that this student is about to graduate with a degree from your department?
