This graphic is one of the concept maps I've created. Each node includes links to pages on our web sites with information related to that topic. This particular map is one pointing to research that shows where and why volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs are needed.
Adults and youth could be visiting web libraries like this and reading, reflecting and discussing the ideas in each link. As they do that they build relationships, build learning habits and critical thinking, and learn ways to take charge of their futures. The people helping facilitate this process, as well as those who build the information maps, could be from different parts of the world. The youth and volunteers could also be from different parts of the world.
While the information on the Tutor/Mentor Institute, LLC site focuses on building a better distribution of constantly improving tutor/mentor programs reaching kids in high poverty areas, this type of information mapping could focus on any topic and/or any region of the country. The mentoring and learning that is involved in building an understanding could have great value. Are you doing anything like this in your work?
What about others who are part of this forum? What are you doing with on-line mentoring?
