Gone are the days when planning and thinking were done mainly by pen and paper.Technology have made it pretty much easier to think in different other ways. Free mind mapping , brainstorming and concept mapping applications are ubiquitous online and more and more teachers are using them . The 21st century education is based , on a large part of it, on the visual output.

- Graphic organizers help students make powerful connections between ideas and concepts


- They help students develop their convergent thinking by providing a framework for the development of new ideas through analysis, reflection and display.


- They also help students promote their divergent thinking by using such techniques as brianstorming to generate ideas.


- They can be used for developing vocabulary skills and improve reading, writing and communication skills.


- Students can easily learn new concepts and think in new novel ways using graphic organizers
