Find That File – Search for content by file type (Gr. 6-12)
Find That File is an Internet search engine designed to help users find content by media file type. For example, let’s say you would like to find an audio recording of MLK Jr. “I Have A Dream” speech. Simply enter your search criteria into the text box, then use the filtering tools on the left-hand side of the screen to filter the results into specific file types (mp3., wma, .m4a, etc).
- This could be a valuable tool for students who are looking for specific types of media to include with their project presentations.
- This service can be made even more powerful when paired with a file conversion website like Zamzar.com If you find the right type of media but it’s in the wrong format, then you can use Zamzar to convert the file to a format that does work for you and your computer.
