Google Tools: Aren’t they great?

When people think about Google they think about searching the web, but Google is so much more. Google provides a number of Google Tools in lieu of their number one search engine. For example, they have Google Earth, Blogger, Sketch Up, Google Apps, Google Docs & Spreadsheets, Google Checkout, Google Mini, Google maps, Google language tools, and much more. Clicking HERE will give you access all of these tools.

One of my personal favorites from Google is the Google language tool. Utilizing the Google language tool I can search by language, country, and subject. I have found this tool to be more than worthwhile for the foreign language classroom. Additionally, like Alta Vista’s Babel Fish, the Google language tool allows me to translate text and entire websites from one language to another. Try it out!
