A missive from the Island.
Been working hard on school this week. I'm really enjoying the course I'm taking this semester and considering the issues associated with the use of "technology" for educational purposes.
This week we're due to submit a progress report on our project and I used SMART Ideas(TM) software to map out my portion of our deliverable.
Being able to map out a concept allows me to ensure I've covered the angles and it's also very valuable in terms of considering the relationships within the model itself. It also informs my impression(s) as I work on it. This kinesthetic and visual learner enjoys being able to manipulate and work on a graphical representation of the problem or concept at hand.
