PSI's PYP in Action: The PYP planner: Planning for inquiry

"Some responses to the recent survey question, "What do you think or believe is not so good about the PYP?" were the "paper work", and, "the planner". Planning for inquiry is challenging, however, when it is planned collaboratively and mindfully, the "work", paper or electronic, is worth the time and effort...."

Visual Collaborative Brainstorming with GroupMap

 

Robin Good: GroupMap is a visual mapping tool that allows groups of people to collaboratively work around specific ideas, problems or issues.

 

Instead of offering a generic mindmapping tool and letting users find their application for it, GroupMap has been designed with a specific application in mind, providing much greater value to those interested in improving decision-making processes, creative brainstorming and idea-generating sessions .

 

"GroupMap shows you what the group is thinking by combining the views and ideas of individual participants."

 

The free version allows up to five contributors per map.

 

Applications and uses: http://www.groupmap.us/solutions/

This is a great site where students are able to create their own stories. There is also opportunity for students to send and recieve comments to and from other classmembers in relation to their stories. This form of communication is a good way for students to practice proper commenting techniques.

Todaysmeet is a simple digital resource where teachers/students are able to communicate and/or collaborate about a specific topic in a private space. It has the capacity to vary the period of time the room is accessed e.g. hourly, daily, weekly etc. making it suitable for short and long term activities.
