My Ed.D. thesis concept map on ‘Digital Literacy’

This concept map took me ages. So long, in fact that I’ve no big long words or energy left to pad out this blog post longer than it needs to. Suffice it to say that the references on it can be found on my wiki. 🙂

I created the concept map using XMind, which is Open Source, cross-platform software that allows you to upload and collaborate. I found it very easy to use and would recommend it as a perfect blend of online and offline functionality! 😀

I’ve been asked under what license I’m releasing this mindmap. Here’s my answer:

  1. Excellent!
    I had a bit of difficulty seeing it – on here in Firefox, Flock & Chrome, the “About” box overlay it, IE keeps crashing (that’s not you – I’m blaming the lastest update that M/S sent for IE8 beta – not that I use it much).
    However, opening it up in a new frame on its own was great … and something that I’ll need to take time to take in & think about.
