Baby Matterz Is Using Mindjet Connect

Mindjet announces that the ground-breaking education programme Baby Matterz is using its collaboration platform Mindjet Connect to bring together a group of world-renowned experts in teaching and childcare to help develop a new learning experience for school children in the UK.

Baby Matterz is a new initiative being introduced into schools that gets children to understand babies and toddlers, and Mindjet Connect forms the central 'visual' planning hub from where professionals discussed and developed the programme in an effective and non-invasive way.

Mindjet Connect is a hosted software-as-a-service offering that delivers three levels of functionality: the core MindManager information mapping application; secure online workspaces where teams can co-create and edit maps simultaneously, as well as store and edit any kind of file; and unified communications tools like web conferencing, instant messaging and whiteboards.

Mindjet Connect is a collaboration platform that lets people map their information and collaborate over the web in real time allowing users to visually organise, communicate and act on ideas. The Baby Matterz programme has been developed on a workspace over the web with contributors, experts and professionals invited to meetings to populate content within the planning map. From the map or workspace, individuals collaborate on the development of the course in real time and users can chat with other team members, launch web conferencing to present information, share desktops or record notes collaboratively on a dynamic, online map of their information and ideas. By using a SaaS workspace solution the experts or professionals could also enter the programme at a convenient time to make amendments and improvements no matter where they were located.

The Baby Matterz programme gets pupils to learn about the social, emotional and physical development of babies and toddlers in a completely different way and is currently piloting in Liverpool with later plans to introduce across other UK schools.
