I’m looking forward to presenting two workshops at the NYLA SLMS 2009 Conference next week. One of the sessions is on Google tools for schools. In the conference program I suggested people stop by my blog and tell me about their favorite Google tools. A bit late, but the invitation is still open and open to anyone! Please share your favorite Google tools.
And with that in mind, Google released some new features today.
- Similar Images is a new service being tested in Google Labs. Search for a photo and look for the “Similar Images” link in the results to see more images like the one you selected. It finds images that have similar objects, colors & layout.
- News Timeline – Also new in Google Labs. Select from many sources: news, blogs, photos, Time,Â Wikipedia, quotes and more. Select time frame (1800, 1500, 1952, etc.) And frequency: day, week, decade, etc. Great display of articles, quotes, news stories and more. Sampel searches:
