Google recently launched  a new service called “What Do You Love?”  At first glance, this appears to be a simple search box.  As an experiment, I searched “independent school.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The screenshots above represent a sampling of what google provided me with after conducting my search.  You may be thinking “Wow, so much information it is a bit overwhelming,” or “what happened to just googling something?”  I think “What do you love?” just might run a typical google search right out of town.

Once you get past the general feeling of being overwhelmed, it is quite clever how google integrated over 20 different services (all google of course) to conduct the search.  “What do you love” is a one-stop shopping search where you can get results from YouTube, Image Search, Google Translate, Google Maps, Blog Search, and more!  Think of the possibilities you could come across with this unique search, and the time it could potentially save.  In the classroom, it could also be a great way to demonstrate the power of technology and the vast amount of information available on the internet.

Check it out by visiting www.wdyl.com or www.google.com/whatdoyoulove/.

So get searching!  What do you love?
