Two Teaching Tools

This is an example of the brainstorming use of Mindmeister. Below are the requisites for the Tip article on tools. They were copied from the web site and pasted in as a note. They guided my writing of the article. 1. State succinctly the context within which you used the strategy 2. State the pedagogical purpose of the strategy 3. Describe the strategy itself in brief, clear language 4. State why you think the strategy was effective 5. Please provide a title If you register for Mindmeister you will see a features frame on the right side. It does not show in this public version which is read only. Clicking on "Advanced" beneath the frame Extras - Notes" opens a larger editing frame and permits the use of many formatting tools. (In your editing version it also can be used to read the notes in a larger frame.) For writing notes may be added directly to the map and the whole map may be exported as an outline, including the notes. (Links and files are not spelled out. They are for use on the web.) The outline may then be revised to compose the article. For this article that step was skipped.
