"Talk to Books" at TED 2018: Ray Kurzweil unveils Google's astounding new search tool will answer any question by reading thousands of books — | Google tools | Scoop.it
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Imagine if you could gather thousands of writers in a circle to discuss one question. What would optimist Thomas L. Friedman say about intervening in Syria, for example? Would chaos theorist Santo Banerjee concur?

Google now has a way to convene that kind of forum—in half a second. Speaking to TED curator Chris Anderson yesterday (April 13), legendary futurist Ray Kurzweil introduced “Talk to Books” a new way to find answers on the internet that should bring pleasure to researchers, bookworms and anyone seeking to expand their thinking on a range of topics.

Type a question into “Talk to Books,” and AI-powered tool will scan every sentence in 100,000 volumes in Google Books and generate a list of likely responses with the pertinent passage bolded.

4 Good YouTube Extensions for Teachers

4 Good YouTube Extensions for Teachers | Google tools | Scoop.it
In today's post we are sharing with you four handy Chrome extensions that will enhance your YouTube viewing experience. The first extension in the list enables you to turn off the lights in a YouTube page so you can only focus on the video playing. The second one provides you with an excellent solution to block annoying ads on YouTube videos . The last two extensions come with a bunch of functionalities all geared towards improving your YouTube experience. You only need to install one of these extensions; in case you have more than one YouTube extension installed on your Chrome browser this could probably create a conflict and result in the extensions not working properly.

11 Chrome Extensions That Will Super-Power Your Gmail Experience | Google tools | Scoop.it

Google makes the Chrome browser and Google makes Gmail. Naturally, the Chrome Web Store has some excellent extensions to improve your Gmail experience. But it also has several that you don’t need. Let’s sift the gems from the mud.

Note: The extensions in this list work only with Gmail. If you prefer the time-saving Inbox by Gmail, there are separate extensions for that.

Inbox by Gmail is Google's most recent approach to email organization and management. It can give you a simpler email workflow. Find out if Inbox by Gmail can be the better choice for you.

7 Reasons You Need to Try Voice Typing in Google Docs | Shake Up Learning

7 Reasons You Need to Try Voice Typing in Google Docs | Shake Up Learning | Google tools | Scoop.it
As a former ELA teacher, I am naturally drawn to technology that supports reading and writing. Google Docs is fully-loaded with some features that can save us time in and out of the classroom, and often times can even save us a little heartache when it comes to supporting students.

One tiny little feature that packs an amazing punch is Voice Typing in Google Docs. This is a speech-to-text feature that is built-in to the most popular word processor in the world, and it is available to you and your students if you have a microphone in your devices.

You can dictate all kinds of words, lists, and writing into Google Docs. You can also dictate formatting, punctuation, and editing. But wait…there’s more! YOU CAN DICTATE IN OTHER LANGUAGES!!!!! WHOA!!!!
