GroupMap: a good Tool for boosting students visual and critical thinking skills

Written by Gianfranco D'Aversa.

groupmap

GroupMap is an excellent educational web tool for group brainstorming and decision making. It allows you to create your own map and invite others to contribute to it. GroupMap also provides a wide variety of pre-designed graphic organizer templates that teachers can use with students in class to engage them in critical thinking activities.

GroupMap is also a response system that supports real-time feedback and response collection. Teachers can see each students' contribution and assess it in real time. Teachers can either enable anonymous sharing so students won’t be able to see each others’ ideas or make it open environment with anyone being able to the group contributions. When done, teachers can use GroupMap’s reporting features to :"summarize the entire map instantly into web reports or excel; see how people contributed, and how they rated the activity; and provide evidence and transparency into the decision making process."

Another experiment with dancing particles. Went for something vibrant with a less ideal track for this kind of thing, but I think it worked out alright. Thanks for watching.

A great Web Tool for creating educational timelines in 3D

Written by Gianfranco D'Aversa.

tiki

Tiki-Toki is easy to use and does not require any software download. All you have to do is sign up for a free account and start designing your timelines right away. The free account includes the basic features to create a timeline and is limited to one timeline only. There is however a special account for teachers for $125 a year which includes access to all new features.

Timelines you create via Tiki-Toki can also include different multimedia materials such as images, text, and videos from YouTube and Vimeo. You can create different categories for the events you include in your timeline and colour code them for easy access. Another great feature of Tiki-Toki is the ‘group edit’ which allows you to invite your colleagues to contribute to your timelines and work on them collaboratively. Depending on the account you set up, timelines you create on Tiki-Toki can be embedded in a website or blog using an embed code. They can also be shared with others through a generated URL. 

GENESYS. The mystery of life

Written by Gianfranco D'Aversa.

genesys personal site

GENESYS tells the story of contemporary scientists who are advancing a powerful but controversial idea - the theory of intelligent design. Using computer animation, this video transports you into the interior of the living cell to explore systems and machines that bear the unmistakable hallmarks of design. A biological information processing system more powerful than any computer network. And a thread-like molecule that stores instructions to build the essential components of every living organism on earth. Watch the video here.
