Dilwyn has taught ICT and Mathematics in Welsh medium secondary schools in South Wales for over twenty years. He is currently Head of ICT at Ysgol Gyfun Bro Morgannwg in the Vale of Glamorgan and is a true believer in the power of Mind Mapping especialy through the use of iMindMap. In 2009 he led the team that won the school the prestigious Becta Excellence Award for Best Whole School Use of ICT in Wales. These awards aim to identify and reward whole school excellence in IT and reward those organisations who support school improvement with ICT.
Time management and forward planning are essential skills needed by the students in their ICT lessons and iMindMap is a key facilitator for this, and enables users to keep on track with their projects. iMindMap provides a full and clear picture of what they need to get done, highlighting priorities and using images that are personal to them to provide meaning.
It’s not just the ICT department at Bro Morgannwg that use iMindMap. The Welsh, German and History department all use iMindMap when collecting ideas or preparing essays. iMindMap helps the students map out the relevant details and better organise and connect their thoughts. The colour and images in iMindMap are particularly appealing to the Arts department who also enjoy the many benefits of using the software. iMindMap also facilitates teachers when explaining work as they can pictorially represent a lesson plan, while for students it encourages freedom of expression when planning their work.
