Alternative Mindmapping Apps

Alternative Mindmapping Apps | Web tools to support inquiry based learning | Scoop.it

Mind Mapping is one of those skills that students can really benefit from, whether it is just to organise what they need to know, showing what they already know or even scaffolding a piece of writing. I love the ease of mind mapping on the iPad especially those apps that allow you to go back and modify or enhance an existing mind map.

Karen Bonanno's insight:

A good range of free and priced apps.

Web tools to support inquiry-based learning

Inquiry-based learning is an active learning process, based on identifying relevant questions to research so that the student can develop knowledge about or create solutions to issues and problems.

Web tools allow students to engage in collaborative and interactive learning. All phases of inquiry learning can be adequately addressed through a wide variety of web-based tools and applications.

Karen Bonanno's insight:

A growing list of web tools that teachers can use to engage students in an inquiry based learning project or to provide access to a rich information resource environment.

8 digital skills we must teach our children

8 digital skills we must teach our children | Web tools to support inquiry based learning | Scoop.it

The way children use technology is very different from adults. This gap makes it difficult for parents and educators to fully understand the risks and threats that children could face online. As a result, adults may feel unable to advise children on the safe and responsible use of digital technologies. Likewise, this gap gives rise to different perspectives of what is considered acceptable behaviour.
