I have come across www.spezify.com recently, and thought that it might be useful for presenting information in an interesting way. The traditional way of presenting in schools is powerpoint, and the problem with this is that some teachers (and many more students) just read out the text that is on the screen. Not good practice! Spezify is at heart a search engine that delivers text, picture, tweets, sound and video based around your search term. You can then look at your search results and ‘favourite’ particular results that could link into your presentation. This then means that you can use the favourites to talk about, rather than talk from. You do need all your links and pictures etc in the favourites, and if you need to change your subject, you need to redo your favourites.

This is a really good example of this in action from Doug Belshaw;
