All survey respondents will have an additional 25 popplets added to their account.
The survey is available online at http://www.surveymonkey.com/
http://Popplet.com users in education can also access the survey by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or via the Popplet blog, Poppletrocks!
“In recent months, we have been managing strong growth in the number of users of both our web and iPad app versions of Popplet. Around the world, Popplet is being used to collect and curate ideas, map concepts and plans, work collaboratively across teams, and as an aide to visual thinking,” said Notion co-founder, Jared Schiffman.
In order to continue strengthening the data storage capacity and extend the range of features available, the makers of Popplet are looking to introduce a modest subscription model in the near future. “We plan to continue enhancing our visual thinking tool with new features and further strengthening our data stability and storage capabilities, but need to balance this with a sustainable business model.”
“One of our largest group of users are in the education sector and we are proud to see Popplet being integrated into classroom activities and as an aide to learning,” said Jared. “We want to ensure that the introduction of any subscription model does not act as a barrier to Popplet’s continued use in the classroom.”
Popplet has been used with students of all ages to encourage collaboration on team projects, to map concepts and visually show the connection between information and ideas, and as a memory aide. Teachers use Popplet in lesson planning and encourage students to use Popplet for independent study and note-taking. Some teachers have incorporated using Popplet into assignment tasks.
Jared concluded: “Thanks to all the teachers, educators and bloggers in education technology who have been sharing how they use Popplet with their colleagues at conferences and in online forums. We hope you can now share some insights with us so we can keep enhancing the value of Popplet to the education sector.”
Education users are encouraged to complete the survey by 31 January, 2012. All survey responses will remain anonymous, and all respondents will receive 25 additional popplet boards for their account use.
