Mural.ly May Be The Mind Mapping Tool You’ve Been Waiting For

Mural.ly May Be The Mind Mapping Tool You’ve Been Waiting For | Digital Tools for the Classroom | Scoop.it

Mural.ly is a new tool (still in beta, launched last week) that is a cross between Prezi and mind maps. It’s easy to use and share what you create (perfect for most students, teachers, and parents) but the real beauty of mural.ly is in its lack of structure.

Nice and catchy way to get your students to defend and describe ideas... it can be turned into a highly powerful communicative environment... make students describe their Mural.ly in front of the class!

Digital Literacy in the Primary Classroom

Digital Literacy in the Primary Classroom | Digital Tools for the Classroom | Scoop.it

Kevin McLaughlin writes a great post sharing: What is Digital Literacy

 

Futurelab, an organisation ‘committed to developing creative and innovative approaches to education, teaching and learning’, gives the following definition in its publication Digital Literacy across the curriculum:

 

To be digitally literate is to have access to a broad range of practices and cultural resources that you are able to apply to digital tools. It is the ability to make and share meaning in different modes and formats; to create, collaborate and communicate effectively and to understand how and when digital technologies can best be used to support these processes.
