A simple mind mapping tool... - 3 views

  •  
    I imagine there are many web 2.0 sites like this around. Playing around on it a bit made me realize how much easier it is to manipulate than good old paper and pencil. Does anyone have any recommendations of what you think 'the best' mindmapping site is?

    Hi, Kris
    I see what you mean about good old paper and pencil. I use MindManager, an application that's been around for a while. There is a fee. It's possible to buy a CD or to purchase it for download. I bought it a couple of years ago. As a visual learner and planner, I've appreciated being able to draw maps of agenda items for meetings. The color-coding is a special help for me. If I can find time to spend on bubbl.us, I might find that it's just as good a tool.

    Thanks, Diane. I imagine there are many 'best' programs/sites but it does take time to learn how to use them.

    This mind mapping tool is very simple. I have used it with elementary students as well as high school students.

"It may be surprising to realize that there is such a disconnect between what students think will afford good learning and what is actually best. We as educators need to keep this in mind as we create learning tools and evaluate educational practices

    WOW! no more using imaginary city maps. Create a map with your own city (or students' home cities) with actual locations. INCREDIBLE

    Great mapping activity--uses your own city and actual locations with marks. Could be used by students to practice giving directions, address information, etc.
