This looks good but it is not free. Universities already offer it for free to their students.

Edgar Mata's curator insight, July 23, 2:56 PM

Para que los alumnos no "copien y peguen".
Esta herramienta detecta diversas formas de plagio, muy buena.

 

Nunca fue necesario que los alumnos escribieran a mano para evitar el copy-paste, ahora menos que nunca, con tantas herramientas disponibles, es preferible que el trabajo esté en formato electrónico par buscar, más rápido, de dónde obtuvieron la información.

Looks like this will be fun - you ask the question out loud and they provide their responses on their devices which appear on the big screen.  I like that.  Things to consider, you can't really add text - just select numbers, yes/no and average.  You can add text for a question if you wanted to but needs some thought to ensure discussion

What’s the point of education if Google can tell us anything?

What’s the point of education if Google can tell us anything? | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

Such debate about the place and purpose of online searching in learning and assessments is not new. But rather than thinking of ways to prevent students from cheating or plagiarising in their assessed pieces of work, maybe our obsession with the “authenticity” of their coursework or assessment is missing another important educational point.

MindMup

MindMup | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

Another way MindMup is now allowing you to work with larger groups easier is a quick notification mechanism when someone changes a node. You'll get a small speech bubble pop up for several seconds and disappear automatically, so it's easy to keep an eye on the entire team or classroom. At the moment, this only works for node text changes, but in the future we'll add other notification types.

Nik Peachey's insight:

Great free tool which enables the collaborative building of mind maps.
