Scientist discover their first biofluorescent turtle While filming small sharks and coral reefs in the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific, marine biologists had a stunning encounter with a "glowing" sea turtle. Scientists captured footage of a hawkbill sea turtle emitting neon green and red light. The discovery was made in late July by David Gruber of the City University of New York and his team. The footage was released for the first time on Monday. Gruber, an emerging explorer for National Geographic, described the turtle as an alien spaceship when he initially saw it swimming in the water. "It was absolutely gorgeous," Gruber said in an interview with CNN.

How to Implement Problem Based Learning with ICTs Posted by Shelly Terrell on Friday, November 8th 2013 From the Cool Sites Series “All kids need is a little help, a little hope and somebody who believes in them.” -Earvin Magic Johnson This week I am in beautiful Atlanta, Georgia, presenting at the GAETC conference. It is one of the most organized and interesting conferences I’ve been to and they’ve had some incredible presenters/keynotes. Web sites and mind maps - WikIT If you plan and design web sites, mind maps can provide a useful platform because of the ease with which they display structure and links. Websites rarely adopt a pure tree hierarchy however, so the capabilities of concept mapping software can also be useful. Planning web sites[edit] Writing content in context[edit] Building web sites[edit] Some mind mapping software can take a mind map and turn it into a web site – or at least the structure of a web site.

Many of us are finding ourselves conducting business with people from a variety of cultures. Such contexts require the creation of new communication practices that go beyond simply the mastery of whatever language we are using.

Write Better: 3 Ways To Introduce Your Main One of the biggest bugaboos in manuscript submissions is when the author doesn’t properly introduce the protagonist within the first chapter. Readers want to know quickly the protagonist’s sex, age and level of sophistication in the world of the story, and they want to relate to the character on an emotional level. Readers’ interest in the protagonist has to be earned, in other words. If we like a character, then we want to see her do well and we’re willing to follow her around and invest our time and interest in rooting her on in her struggle. But it’s important we know some essentials about the character so we can get to like her. The trick is to avoid stand-alone description or exposition and to instead show your character in action.

This was exactly what I was looking for. Simple and EASY! Very effective. Other mind mapping sites should take notice and stop making it so complicated, because that interupts the flow of ideas. by tansyrla Jan 11

there is also a cool site based on collective anonymous brainstorming... and there is also cowonder for closed teams @amberheern it seems some people are using it for the classroom too by fermin34 Oct 14

I think I could use this in my classroom for many things! I love having my students use mind maps. I would love to add this as a choice while differntiating for many topics. by amberheern Oct 14

I like the exports i couldn't find in other tools. You can export an image or html file. by mrs_tokaji Apr 9

Good one. It's functional and flexible, and I usually get results from brainstorming with it, unlike many other mindmapping apps which block creativity with bulky editing or too many bells and whistles. Has color styles. Linking and delinking of nodes. Multiple "main nodes." Large virtual space. by teresafisher Apr 8

No prob- one of the things I love about about mindomo is that they have a desktop version and they're just gorgeous mindmaps. by kbpc172 Apr 18

Loved this tool - it was quick and easy to get started and relatively easy to learn how to modify formating and tweak the alignment between bubbles. Nice that there is a free trial option - subscriptions seem reasonable as well. by kisbundas Nov 5
