'2Connect is a concept mapping tool. It can support a writer with planning, be used to organise and present ideas or as a means to collaboratively collect ideas. The tool gives you the ability to import pictures and sounds, record your own audio, add notes and insert hyperlinks.

In the first of a new series of blogs highlighting Teacher features in Purple Mash, we are focusing on using Display Boards within your school. Display boards are a fantastic way of displaying the amazing work created by your students. You can create a board for a topic, a piece of homework or any other project of your choice. There is no limit to what you can use them for or how many you can create. They are quite simply, a versatile way of displaying work within your class and school.
