Experiment Google Custom Search Engine | The Groovy Librarian - Teaching in the 21st Century Today I have been experimenting with Google Custom Search Engine. As a teacher librarian and educator I thought it was about time that I learnt to build a search engine that is customised with content, or a collection of sites/pages, on a particular topic(s) for a class/year level.

knovio – Transforma powerpoint em apresentação com conteúdo sincronizado Knovio é uma fantástica ferramenta que nos permite realizar apresentações usando o vídeo como protagonista. A ideia é poder mostrar um vídeo e uma apresentação de forma simultânea, sincronizando os momentos para que apareça o conteúdo adequado no momento que o desejamos. No exemplo que podemos ver em sua homepage um dos responsáveis pelo sistema aparece em um vídeo comentando suas funções ao mesmo tempo que uma apresentação online avança mostrando o texto que o apresentador anuncia.

No momento se encontra na fase beta fechada, mas pode solicitar convite em sua homepage (em alguns casos estão demorando menos de 1 hora para enviar).
