  • I have used GroupMap in a simulation exercise for a final year unit that I tutored. In this class, select students had to communicate with mock patients in our model pharmacy room while being filmed in real-time for the rest of the class to observe. To allow for detailed feedback to be provided, I simply asked my students to make constructive comments on a 'Pros/Cons' GroupMap template while observing their fellow student perform in the simulation exercise. The use of GroupMap to assist in peer-feedback provision -  and its subsequent use to drive class discussion - were well received by all three classes that I tutored.

Features designed for classrooms

Build, reuse and share lesson activities

Created a lesson you love? You can save the map as a template so that you can rinse and repeat. You can even invite other teachers and share templates. Now that’s a time saver!

School branding and integration

Add your school logo, authentication for managing users and custom URL to GroupMap. Integrate easily by adding links to specific activities or workstations into your learning management systems such as Blackboard, Moodle or Edmodo.

Affordable upfront pricing

We keep things simple. No freemiums, in-app purchases or free tools to bait and switch. We provide a fixed price for your school from as little as $1 per person per year or teacher accounts on a month by month basis.

Staff, student and data security

All our maps already use SSL to transfer data (the same technology used by banks) and we back up your data every day. If your school needs additional security measures through firewalls and integration in a more controlled environment, we can do that too.

Profanity filter 

This is built in as a default for all education based accounts just to play it safe. @#$% be gone. Teachers can also moderate content, address online etiquette issues as a teachable moment and monitor activity.

Individual or collaborative brainstorming modes

Individual brainstorming means each student only sees what they have entered allowing you to individually assess or give feedback. Collaborative brainstorming modes means ideas can be seen in real time as they are entered which is perfect for small group work and idea sharing.

Need more reasons to get started?

Amazing support

Our school plans come with additional support that means we help you as a teacher get value straight away by helping you create your first lesson plan based on what you need. You’ll be supported by someone with real teaching experience (High School and Tertiary) and a masters degree.

Individual student activity reports

Grab a full session report in a click or see individual student contributions so you can see who is and is not contributing.

Choose anonymity settings

Depending on your activity, you can make your maps anonymous to get honest answers, partially anonymous so that you can see who said what but the other students can’t, or not anonymous so that names are shown against each idea.

Make an impact

GroupMap has been a finalist in the OzApp, Reimagine Education and Australian iAwards (Education) category. We continue to build tools for teachers who want to help their students think better together.
