Topic: Classroom Blogging
Google has just added a tool in Google Book that allows users to select and embed text from pages of books included in the Google Book collection into a blog post (see sample Shakespeare sonnet below) or web page. Selections may also be sent to Google Notebook.
The tool doesn't jump right out at you (it's just to the right of the grabber tool), but I think I can see where a teacher could use something like this to direct students' attention to a specific passage for a lesson. I think I'll keep an eye on what happens with it.
