This week I was exposed to bubbl.us a site for online brainstorming. I wanted to write about several connections I had related to this site.
First, from a grad student perspective I have been reading and learning about the importance of brainstorming when creating presentations. Using sticky notes was one method or suggestion given for brainstorming. This site looked like another good way for individuals and groups to brainstorm and plan out presentations.
This site also reminded me a lot of Inspiration software. Inspirations is used a lot in the school setting for brainstorming, making concept maps, creating graphic organizers. I can see a lot of students using bubbl.us because they are so familiar with Inspiration. Or another way to say it is the skills they learn using Inspiration are very transferable.
