Mural.ly May Be The Mind Mapping Tool You’ve Been Waiting For

Mural.ly May Be The Mind Mapping Tool You’ve Been Waiting For | Comprehension | Scoop.it

Mural.ly is a new tool (still in beta, launched last week) that is a cross between Prezi and mind maps. It’s easy to use and share what you create (perfect for most students, teachers, and parents) but the real beauty of mural.ly is in its lack of structure.

Nice and catchy way to get your students to defend and describe ideas... it can be turned into a highly powerful communicative environment... make students describe their Mural.ly in front of the class!
