    Excellent perspective on "The 'W' Word" - use it wisely for what it is - high school and college kids shouldn't be citing any general knowledge encyclopedias for serious research - but that doesn't mean there aren't some excellent uses for it.

  • The biggest advantage bubbl.us has over other mind-mapping software is that you do not have to have an account to create and print a mind-map (also known as a concept map).  This means students can get online, map the concept they have been assigned, and print it out for you to grade. 
  • TIPS FOR YOU As you have your students work with bubbl, here are some TIPS to keep in mind. “FIT” centers the mind-map in the middle of the screen (useful for panicked students who think their whole project has been deleted) if students move a “parent” bubble, all the “child” bubbles will follow along
  • But I knew that bubbl was truly useful when one of my students reported she had used it to help her decide which college to attend.

  • By Week 5, the students are using five of their Juicy Words per week, and collecting an average of 15—five more than the ten words that I require
