Multiple Media Search

Multiple Media Search | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

I have to say that I think Spezify has just become my favourite new search engine. I think this is a really great search engine to use in class with students or to get them to use. It's really simple. It displays all results as images and it searches a wide range of multiple media sources such as video, image Twitter etc, not only text.

Nik Peachey's insight:

Still enjoying this great tool.

It might also be a place for online teachers to create a space for each of their students or small groups to interact, get feedback, etc. Of course, the one issue is the blocking of Google by certain countries, including the PRC unfortunately.
