This website is testament to what can be achieved by effective collaboration and learning from each other. We have talked about Sharing good practice for years and many of us have practiced this - This Facebook site is full of amazing ideas from local teachers just like us. Join up as soon as you can- Over 4,000 Northern Ireland teachers joined in one week!
This is a brilliant resource that I have been using for years! Make Mindmaps on your iPad. These are easy to produce and are interactive as I will try to explain.
Are they useful? Well every May/June this is what I see the pupils stream down to exams carrying.
I quite simply LOVE this app! I have used it for years and I know it gets results.
It has been estimated that Mindmaps can make revision and recall between 10 and 35% more effective! They are ideal for breaking down big topics and for creating organisation and structure to content. Certainly when it comes to exam days there mindmaps are what I see my students carry and generally their results prove its success. This costs about £10 but is a huge investment.
