Our school has been using MindView for about 8 years.
As part of the regular lessons, 1 teacher works with 2 classes of around 22 students each. We use MindView in our technology department and for overarching school projects in addition to our school administration and in other classes - depending on requirements.
I chose MindView because we used to use MS Projekt for our wood technology school. However, this turned out to be too complex for us, especially given the limited time available to us
We use MindView for project planning and project management as well as in teaching
Via MindView, our students get a tool for project management and - very important - also a digital tool that can be used independently.
In addition to many other things, I particularly appreciate the intuitive use of the digital tool. The dynamically changing views also save me a lot of time when visualizing and transforming information.
We only have a total of 12 lessons available and with 6-8 hours of input, the students can (or must) work on a task independently. This works great with MindView.
MindView is a “simple” program, so with limited classroom time, great success can be seen. The smooth transition from the mind map and project structure plan to the Gantt chart and the export options to MS Office are certainly also an advantage.
School organization and topic planning of the students.
See points 5 and 6. That speaks for itself
The collaboration works. We have a 3 year contract. It is important for us that students are entitled to use the software on their own PCs during school hours, which is given by our contract.
Yes, see points 5, 6 and 9. I do this all the time too.
