From the creators
of Hot Potatoes, Half-Baked Software, this tool allows a teacher
to create mazes with multiple paths through a series of activities.
They can be created so that users have to get correct answers to
a series of questions to reach the end of the maze. I found the
example at http://www.halfbakedsoftware.com/quandary/version_1/examples/firstaid.htm
to be particularly effective in reinforcing the retention of basic
information via 'drill and practice'!

It's hard to
describe what this tool does. From the Amplify website: "Amplify
empowers you to clip and collect content from different sites you
visit into your own Web collages. " It effectively allows
you to collect bits of websites and reorganise them into one page
- a new webpage in effect - called an Amp.
I'm not sure
how I might use this tool but check it out and see what you think.
A rough and ready example is HERE
indeed every month, Google publishes a list of the most poplular
searches in several countries around the planet. It can be found
I'm sure the information presented in the search summaries for various
countries would make excellent discussion starters. Google also
features a range of language tools at http://www.google.com.au/language_tools?hl=en
(translation tools - can be useful for short phrases; and tools
that enable users to use Google in approximately 100 languages.)
