Popplet: A cool tool for mind-mapping and making thinking become visual

Teaching Information

This week in my CEP 810 class at Michigan State University we were asked to create a Popplet that represents the resources that we use when we need information relating to our job. The picture above represents the resources that I use when I am learning what others are doing to help their students acquire a language.

At Clarkston High School one of our big pushes is “Cultures of Thinking” and one of the key ideas behind it is making thinking visual through organizers such as mind maps. Poplet is just one way that students can map out their ideas to make their thinking visual. I am really excited to put this tool to use in my classroom.
