First, I really like this assignment. I am always looking for new tools, but don’t often get the time to check them out myself, so thanks for forcing me!
I chose “Quora” https://www.quora.com/# (Links to an external site.)
I looked though a couple of the sites you sent, but this one jumped out at me. I checked out the about page before I signed up. I like that this website is like the deeper thinking version of yahoo answers. So, I signed up and spent a full 5 minutes selecting things I was interested in. I LOVED that there weren’t just generic options like “science,” “fashion,” and “cooking.” There were probably HUNDREDS of options to choose from. Once I got into the website I started scrolling. I already know I am going to be laying in bed reading some of these- I have already downloaded the app!
I like that this website has a feed based on those topics that I enjoy, but I am finding that I wish there was a topic filter for that feed. If I just wanted to look into “palentology” questions, there should be a filter for that.
As an educator I forsee this being a great tool to show my students. I would have to do a lot of research in the beginning and only show them the answer to foster a discussion. Overall, I like the website, simply because it gets me thinking about topics in a different way.
