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.

MFaculty's curator insight, June 21, 5:22 AM

Converting your video to a playable file that you can carry with you on a USB drive can really up your game when teaching in a classroom where you may not have Internet access. 

 

This online application will 'help' IF you take a few minutes the day before your class and do a little prep work. Too often we become accustomed to having technology work flawlessly and fail to bring a plan 'B' with us. 

 

A little preparation will go a long way, plus you'll always have a plan 'B'!

This looks like an extremely useful classroom tool.  (I'm hoping some of our class teachers will trial it).  There is a free usable version, but at only $15 per year for up to 50 students - the paid version is really very affordable.

The attractive thing about this tool is the high level of security it offers.  Access is restricted to the group, profanities are filtered out, and teachers are able to moderate comments.
