Mind Map: Static versus Dynamic Technologies


  1. I noticed that you placed Google docs in both the dynamic and static areas of your graphic organizer. I realize this is in reference to the different ways in which they can be used. It made me wonder that such a tool like the mind map can be utilized to demonstrate how teachers can use technology tools. Sometimes teachers believe that they are integrating technology when they use certain tools. To some extent that is correct. However, this graphic organizer can help teachers assess how they are using technology and chart a way forward for more effective use of technology resources.

  2. I like Google doc because of its flexibility. You are right, charts can be helpful in generating and organizing ideas.
