Just so you know, this post is really not specifically for your classroom! That being said, of course, I know if you use this site, you will most certainly find something for your students and yourself! Stumble Upon is quite possibly one of the most innovative Internet search tools ever created. As I mentioned in Oh, the Places You’ll Google!, often the BEST things we find on the web, we just “stumble upon” as we are looking for something else.
Here’s how it works:
Stumble Upon makes it easy to discover new and interesting sites and information on the Web. Once you create an account, which takes just a few seconds, you click on topics you are interested in finding out more about, and Stumble Upon will transport you to amazing web pages, videos, photos and more that you may not have found on your own.
As you Stumble through great web pages, click the Like or Dislike button at the top of the page, and Stumble Upon will customize your experience even more. The more pages you Like and Dislike, the more specific your stumbles will be.
Members of Stumble Upon have describing this experience as “the entire Internet, all in one place,” ”an epic journey” and “a map to an adventure you wouldn’t otherwise have found out about.”
