1 TIPS Hands-on workshop Using mindmaps (concept maps) in your teaching Saturday March 19, 2005 Dr. Roy Clariana Penn State University

2 goals  Serve as a resource for your questions about other education systems (i.e., USA, UK, Kenya)  Your take aways: • Some experiences with collaborative mindmapping • Some understanding of how/why it works • Some examples that you could implement on Monday morning in your classroom

3 agenda  Welcome and introductions all around  Q&A on any topic …  KTK112 – Homogeneous dyads complete F-2-F mindmap activity  KTK138 – Same dyads, use software to extend the mindmap activity  Debrief

4 Q&A?

5 Mindmaps vs. concept maps Bahr (2004) using concept maps to teach English to German students

6 Mindmap of “group” knowledge (Anni, Anna, Paula, Esa, ja Herkko), source is the second floor hallway

12 tools  Yellow stickies!! Pencil and paper may be best for your classroom  Software – PowerPoint is pretty good  Inspiration is good but expensive for your school  CMAP tool is free, but your tech person will have to agree to support it

13 How have you used cm or mm?

14 Activity 1  Find like-minded partners to form a homogenous team (grade, subject, etc.), name your team to reflect the members  Divide text passage into sections, as you read, underline important words and phrases, add to yellow stickies, stick on the big paper  When all are done, working together to reach consensus, sort the stickies into related clusters  Working together to reach consensus, clean up clusters (combine, delete, add terms), name the clusters Take this mindmap to the lab

15 Cluster analysis Brainstorming (corpus list) Sorting (move like terms closer) Merging & Pruning (combine like terms, delete or move unlike terms, synthesize terms) enter Naming Clusters (name the categories/themes) Sorting Clusters (move like clusters closer) Naming broad themes (name the cluster of clusters) and if necessary E-document (to save/print) Build consensus!

16 Activity 2  In KTK138, convert from paper to a PowerPoint slide (save as ‘group’ name)  Divide the slide into parts, individually (and pairs) enrich your part on a new slide. “Enrichment” is open-ended. The bottom line, decide as a group what you want the final product to accomplish for you (you might consider adding your real-life examples that you can use later and hyperlinks to supporting documents, lesson plans, and images,…)  Combine all new slides into one take away file, share with your group

17 Enriching the mindmap things to avoid try these ideas concrete suggestions Ideas for working with diff. groups

18 debrief  What happened?  What worked?  What did not work?  What would you do differently next time?

19 PowerPoint tips  Text and background color size (12pt) etc.  Drag text and hyper links into slide, copy/paste web pics  Hyperlink text, slide-to-slide  Auto connectors  Move objects one pixel at a time
