Interesting listening to

What Do You Love is a simple search box, similar to the one on Google’s homepage, but it finds results from more than 20 different Google services, including Maps, Google Translate, YouTube, Trends, and Groups.

Expand each section by clicking on the icon in the lower right corner. If you need even more results, you can always click the button in the upper right corner of the box and go directly to the chosen tool.

In a search for Mumbai, we get to find lots of sections of information in different formats.

If nothing else, What Do You Love is a reminder of some of the tools that Google has to offer. There are “other ways of searching”.

The conference will also give us an insight into how schools in Northern Ireland are engaging with ICT and provide us with an opportunity to network directly with the school leaders.”

Throughout the day local schools showcased how they are using ICT to create an innovative, engaging and interactive learning environment, collaborating within and across schools.
