Personal Maps

Personal MapAs a teacher , you will be more than familiar with Mind Maps. They have been used in classrooms for quite some time and have been a great way to generate ideas, get students focussed, planning and ideas generation. I have used them a lot in languages to build vocabulary and expression and to deconstruct texts.  We are in the web 3.0 arena now where anyone can connect with others elsewhere with a specific task/project in mind. This video by Jurgen Appelo explains very clearly how you can use personal maps to break down barriers and create connections really quickly when you want unfamiliar groups of people to work together. I have also made a mental note to look up what software he is using to make that video because in terms of flexible learning it is very effective. The technique of the video presentation keeps the background uncluttered, it keeps the speaker in control and central and it allows the speaker to deliver a clean, clear message. In terms of UX (user experience) it means the viewer is always on task and always focussed. I have been using Freeplane, an open source mind mapping application. It’s colourful, useful and easy to use. It works on any platform but needs java installed. It creates very clear, uncluttered mind maps. I have done my own personal map which I am sharing with you.
