5 Innovative Mind-Mapping Tools For Education | Edudemic

5 Innovative Mind-Mapping Tools For Education | Edudemic | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

What do you do when you have an elaborate project, assignment, or paper that needs to be quickly organized? Do you fire up Microsoft Word and whip up an outline? Do you pull out a pen and paper and start sketching?

What if you could have the best of both options with a free online tool? It’s called ‘mind mapping’ (“Mind Map” is a trademark of the Buzan Organization.) and it’s basically a fun and intuitive way to visually organize your thoughts. Thanks to a recent article, I received an influx of mind-mapping web tools that I wanted to pass along to the Edudemic audience. Enjoy!

Web Tools for Teachers by Type - Tim Wilhelmus' LiveBinder

Web Tools for Teachers by Type - Tim Wilhelmus' LiveBinder | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Tim Wilhelmus (Indiana educator and self-described learning sherpa) has this intimidatingly comprehensive list of tools for teachers, in categories ranging from video and audio editing through digital storytelling, to curation tools to name but a few.

 

It would be a nice place to start for language teacher training: you could assign groups to different rubics and have them compare the tools in the categories, design teaching materials and perhaps decide which work best.

Blogging About The Web 2.0 Connected Classroom: The Super Book Of Web Tools For Educators

Blogging About The Web 2.0 Connected Classroom: The Super Book Of Web Tools For Educators | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

There is lots of great information on there on Web 2.0 and using technology in the classroom for teachers. Heck, just check out the name of this blog. But often if you have teachers that are just starting out or need some help figuring all this tech stuff out, it can be a daunting task as there is lots of information.

My good friend Richard Byrne, writer of the wildly popular Free Technology For Teachers blog approached me a few weeks ago and asked me if I would contribute to a free ebook he was putting together. I was happy to contribute a section on social media. Beyond that you have some of the best in the business of education contributing sections as well, such as Patrick Larkin and George Couros, 2 of my favorite administrators giving us the administrators view of technology. Or Kelly Tenkely, Larry Ferlazzo, Lee, Kolbert, Beth Still, Cory Plough, Adam Bellow, and Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano. Such an amazing list of educators. I am so honored to be included in a publication with them.
