Google Search Updates

Google has updated two of it’s search function in ways that will make it easier for language teachers to find content.

Google Video now allows for a language specific search in the advanced form.  It’s not 100% accurate, but it’s still a great time saver.

Google labs is working on using image recognition for the image search function.  This is particularly useful when you’re searching for a keyword that can have multiple meanings.  “Paris” as in the capital of France or Paris Hilton is one of the examples given.  Now users can select the image that suits their keyword, and similar images will be shown.
