muse: n. a source of inspiration

Happy 25th birthday, World Wide Web! Yup, a quarter century ago, Tim Berners-Lee wrote a decidedly unexciting proposal for “a “hypertext project” called “WorldWideWeb” in which a “web” of “hypertext documents” could be viewed by “browsers.”” Yeah, that’s so sexy sounding, right? Anyway, if you’re interested in reading a little more about the origin of the web, check out the article (with Berners-Lee’s original diagrams). True geek observation: I love that the slide show features Next computers (the company Steve Jobs founded during the time he was ousted as Apple’s president).

Here are a few sites that are useful for student collaboration or mind mapping: Padlet – create a wall and your students can put sticky notes on it. Today’s Meet is a more linear display – comments will appear in chronological order. It’s super easy to use. Bubbl.us is terrific for mindmapping, but it is Flash based, so you’ll want to use it on a laptop or desktop.

Similar Site SEarch is a great way to search for sites that are, well, similar to another site. Let’s say you’re looking for YouTube alternatives. Type YouTube.com into the search bar, and alternatives will appear. Nice!
