This is, indeed, a very inspirational website. I find that I am not exactly sure how to use it. I liked the Hero Project - and saw a discussion yesterday on that that was excellent - but I could not reply or add to it because I was not yet a "member." I don't see that discussion today. It was about how there were different types of heroes, from the perspective of someone who was "saved or helped" by someone else, from the perspective of society, from the perspective of the hero, etc. I thought it was very thought provoking - since I would like to find ways to inspire more "heroic" personas within my students. How do I find it again?
Anyway - this has been a great experience. I am not sure if this is what we had to do for the Virtual Lab part of our course - but it has been wonderful going to all the sites you have suggested.
