Time for a little “Inspiration” (a.k.a., “Better Grokking, with Concept Maps”)

Week 6:  October 5th, 2014

This week was all about the ways that using visually presented information can deepen connections and comprehension for students. As you might guess, chief among these was “Inspiration” software, which, although I’ve encountered some in my other ITEC classes, we got to see in more depth, during class.

I’m glad I re-visited the site. Originally, I had been trying to do Concept Maps (and even my blog) with my iPad. Sure, you can do it, but some wheels don’t need re-invention. The Web-based version seems to work much better.

An online version of the concept map I made (pictured below) is available here:

I think this idea of visual concept mapping just might come in pretty handy!
