Google Labs

A few ideas from Google Labs...

Google News Timeline shows search results in a timeline format.  Users can browse results from sources including  magazines, and blogs.

Image Swirl allows users to browse through results that are visually similar.  Here are some of the results of a search for images about colonial America.

National Archives Experience Digital Vaults

The National Archives Experience: Digital Vaults has a nice online tool for students to search for  primary sources and artifacts.  Artifacts on the site include documents, maps, photographs, and drawings.  Users can create posters and videos using artifacts that they select or add to their collection.  There are also several resources for teachers including lesson ideas using primary sources.
