Apps for Education Pearltrees
What is Pearltrees?
Pearltrees is a visual bookmarking tool that utilizes a mind map-like interface to help you to organize your web page shortcuts in a much more intuitive way than the typical browser bookmark list. It also enables you to connect with other users who share similar interests, which places it in the same camp as other social bookmarking tools.
How to use Pearltrees (beta 0.9)
Tried and Tested
- On a personal front I use Pearltrees to organise teaching resources; Articles for CPD and any new publications.
- To redefine learning I encourage students to work collaboratively to collect subject related links that can be used for revision, subject development or project based learning.
