Welcome to MINDMAPS!
The Wikipedia of Learning Technologies from Pepperdine University
This wiki is one of the shared public spaces developed and used by students who complete the
Masters in Arts in Learning Technologies (online)
(MALT) at Pepperdine University. The students collect conceptual and technical tools for themselves and for others who are interested in keeping pace with technology. This helps keep past and future aware of what some of the exciting trends are in the development of tools and applications.
Mindmaps is connected to the Conceptual Tools Strand for the Pepperdine Program.
Center for Collaborative Action Research
is where students work on Action Research is published.
We are currently revamping the site but our goal is to provide a space to talk about ideas that are important as we think about the ways in which technology can support learning.
Currently we have
1) A number of essays centered on the the promise and perils of using technology to enhance learning; distributed learning and cognition, and the role of wikis and other collaborative tools in learning
2) A set of videos that show examples of community of practice
3) Learning Theorists and the way their model addresses a set of essential questions.
Please visit our visual
representation of the resources created by Cadre 12.
We currently are working on moving to a more dynamic structure. This process is ongoing.
Social Capital: Sharing Collaborative Tools and Resources
We have created a place for current and past students to add links to
that we are exploring. This is an open activity. Anyone finding this site can list collaborative tools. But please don't use this site to advertise your software. This is a wiki, not a sales forum. We also have a page for interesting tools and sites and other
that are not collaboration tools (including
Pepperdine student resources)
. Most recently we have been adding design libraries created by the student cohorts. We also engage students in a mock interviews for which we have information about
Cadre 12's -Design Library of Activities using Web 2.0 tools
Cadre 12 is currently working on designing a library around activities that make use of these web 2.0 tools.
Cadre 11's - Design Library of Tools
. Cadre 11 (2008-9) developed a smaller set of tools with a page description to help you learn how to use the tool as well as a small activity the students created for their cadre to think about how to use the tool.

You can also see more of the students work around the issue of action research at
Center for Collaborative Action Wikispace.
In the current spirit of open courseware, we share our course materials for action research. We teach action research across 4 sessions
(Action Research 650-653
) which we share online.
Conferences --Planning, Presentations and Resources
This site is also used for both faculty and student planning and sharing for, developing presentations and sharing resources around two conferences, Florida Educational Technology conferences (
) and the American Educational Research Association (
). Students plan their presentations for both of these conferences on this site.
Fun (and practice)
is the place to bring your ideas and play. This will help you get comfortable with a wiki. You can try posting pictures, words, changing things making tables and otherwise experiment. Everyone is welcome to play--guests as well as registered users. Have fun!
(And if you see any spelling or grammar errors on any page...always free to correct)
And we close with some one-liner (tweets) on the subject of technology...(please add to the list....)
Mark Schlager: Technology: it never leaves you alone.
Margaret Riel: Technology is shared minds made visible.
