Say Keng Lee's curator insight, October 8, 2013 1:32 AM

Mind mapping is useful for student achievement, and this article illustrates many possibilities of usage.

Christine Bushong's curator insight, October 28, 2013 12:22 PM
Baiba Svenca's insight:

MindMeister have published a great article on mind mapping with students. The article explains the purpose of mindmapping, describes its uses and benefits, and reminds the teachers that MindMeister's maps can be displayed in Presentation Mode.

- Auto-saving your work in your browser

- You can now use key commands:
  - CTRL – Enter (Draw mind map)

  - CTRL – D (Download)
  - CTRL – plus (Zoom in)
  - CTRL – minus (Zoom out)
- Finally, we have left Flash and now rely on pure HTML

I have used this site for a year now. I really like it as a way to work with students that are concrete sequential as well as with students that are more abstract.

Which is the best mindmapping software?

Which is the best mindmapping software? | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

I track discussions about mind mapping on Twitter and in blogs, and I often hear or read the question "Which is the best mindmapping software?" Anyone who gives you a single, immediate answer either knows you and your mindmapping activities very well, or is likely recommending the one that they've become familiar with themselves.

Teachers Guide on The Use of Graphic Organizers in The Classroom

Teachers Guide on The Use of Graphic Organizers in The Classroom | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Gone are the days when planning and thinking were done mainly by pen and paper.Technology have made it pretty much easier to think in different other ways. Free mind mapping , brainstorming and concept mapping applications are ubiquitous online and more and more teachers are using them . The 21st century education is based , on a large part of it, on the visual output.

 

The benefits of graphic organizers in education

 

- Teachers can use graphic organizers to engage visual learners and help them organize their thoughts


- Graphic organizers help students make powerful connections between ideas and concepts


- They help students develop their convergent thinking by providing a framework for the development of new ideas through analysis, reflection and display.


- They also help students promote their divergent thinking by using such techniques as brianstorming to generate ideas.


- They can be used for developing vocabulary skills and improve reading, writing and communication skills.


- Students can easily learn new concepts and think in new novel ways using graphic organizers


- They help students focus on connections rather than words 

 

- Finally , graphic organizers can help both teachers and students develop creative and critical thinking skills.

Construire une carte heuristique

Construire une carte heuristique | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Je souhaitais vous faire partager une expérience très enrichissante que j’ai vécu lors d’une formation avec l’école Française de l’heuristique de Paris. Pendant ce stage de deux jours intitulé « Organisez vos idées avec le Mindmapping » Frédéric Le Bihan nous à fait découvrir une démarche très innovante et ludique « la carte heuristique ». Suite à ce stage j’ai mis en application cette méthode dans le cadre de ma vie professionnelle pour notamment développer des supports de formation et scénariis pédagogiques.

J’ai décidé de vous livrer sous forme heuristique les fondamentaux qui vous permettront de réaliser vos propres cartes mentales sur papier. Cette ressource a été réalisée avec l’outil en ligne Mindmeister...

Merci @olivierlegrand pour le lien
