Multiple Thread Mapping

This feature is designed for teachers and students to map collective inquiry progress across different idea threads that investigate interrelated issues. The map of idea threads shows how the different threads of inquiry have evolved over time and further visualizes cross-thread connections. It is a useful function for teachers and students to monitor which thread is relatively active, and also encourage more notes in the needed areas.

To review multiple idea threads, click “Thread Mapping“. Choose wondering areas and threads that you want to view, then click “start mapping”. All the selected views will show up in a list.

In the map, each color stripe represents an idea thread addressing a principal problem, spanning from the earliest to the latest note created. Each dot shows a note. A line connecting two notes indicates a build-on connection. Dashed vertical lines mark the notes belonging to multiple threads bridging the different lines of discussions.
