Using MindMeister in the Composition Classroom

This is just a demo map that you can delete right away, if you feel like it...

Pros

The Internet! Wheee! Share your mindmaps with the class, or make students collaborate online together.

Throw out those:, 1. Markers, 2. Oversize pieces of newsprint.

Real-time collaboration, too., Multiple people working at once., Updates color-coded for ease of reference to personal edits., Lots of buttons to press. Press buttons together., Togetherness.

Neat and pretty! Organizes itself.

Make it available to the whole Internet. Collaborate with people from outside the classroom, too.

Cons

Paper is probably easier.

Yeah, it's intuitive, but some people would still need training.

Paper doesn't need training

This

Thing, Can, Really, If, That, Contain, So, Much, You're, Data, That, They, Are, Not, Basically, Unreadable, And, Always, Spilling, Off, Screen., Out, Super, Careful, About, Get, Of, It., For, Instance,, Hand, I've, Seen, Some

And the controls are not sensitive in the least and it's sort of a pain to hit every button twice.

Also, it's slow., My lord, it crashed Firefox., Okay second attempt it's working better., Still don't trust it, though., And it's a system-hog, to boot.

Unreliable.

Uses?

Essay outlining

Class activities involving:
