Google is one of the most - if not most - powerful search engines in the world. The capabilities are impressive: video, documents, articles, etc.
After doing some research, I found a really unique search engine that can enhance a particular topic you (or your students) may be searching for. It's a "real-time encyclopedia" called Mashpedia.
Mashpedia has some very unique features, which make it similar and different compared to Google.
When conduct a search you have several options:
- It has the capability to search for video, pictures, news articles, books, etc. just like Google
- It has a Twitter tab, which searches Twitter feeds from the keyword you are searching for.
- It has a Wikipedia tab, which filters out Wikipedia results.
- It has a Slides tab, which automatically looks for slide show presentations containing your keyword.
