Popplet and creating mind maps.

A Popplet I created to show the links between ICT and the Early Years.

Popplet is another website I have been introduce to in the process of the ICT module. It is a fantastic site which allows you to produce visual mind maps of thoughts and ideas using words and media such as photographs.  Popplet would be a great interactive way to produce a mind map in the classroom. Children can suggest their ideas and they can be added to the map. It can be used to produce a map of learning showing what the children have already learnt and what they would like to learn. It could also be used as a tool to gather information about what children know at the atsrt of a topic of learning, and to see what they have learnt by the end. By producing two Popplets, one at the beginning and one at the end the teacher can see progress of learning that has been made.

This is definitely something I can see me using in the classroom to enhance and support learning. To see the Popplet I created about using ICT in the Early Years click on the picture at the top of this post.
