Cool Stuff!

  • Fun with Artificial Intelligence
    * Google is trying out some new AI experiments.  One is called Quick, Draw!.  You begin drawing and Google AI will guess what you are drawing.  I think this could be used with vocabulary reivew.  How do you think you can use it in the classroom?  Here is a video about how it works. 

    * AI Duet is another cool tool.  You play a few notes and then Google AI will paly a few notes and together you can create a song.  Check it out here.

    * Finally, isn't every teacher looking for a good timer?  And if you're like me you start looking for it when you need it...like RIGHT NOW!  You can simply type "Set a timer for 2 minutes" into your Google search bar and Google will start a timer immediately.  You can also find a stop watch here.
