3.4.2. I never heard of this tool before, but I like that it is really hands-on and promotes multiple intelligence. Students will have a ton of fun as they learn. I also like that it caters to more than the English language, this will allow ESL students to participate.I also think that students can use it as away to display their research or communicate with other students etc. h.bint-habib I hadn't heard of it before working in this class! It could be a great tool for ESL learners! The nodes could be connected between the native language (language 1) and their language 2. It could be a fun way to mindmap language. (MK)
