Mind maps and group work.

Been using “Freemind” mind mapping software to assist students in planning group projects.

Have found it has been an excellent tool to quickly list and allocate tasks and improve group tracking of information.

This however has highlighted the need to teach students the explicit skills of group work. One of the biggest issues identified along the way is the development of strategies that empower students to deal with issues and develop agreed responses.

What are your favourite strategies for teaching dealing with issues and moving forward in group tasks?
