Mind Mapping and the Common Core

Mind Mapping and the Common Core | Digital Presentations in Education | Scoop.it

Mind Mapping is a graphical way to represent ideas and concepts. It is a visual thinking tool that helps structure information, helping you to better analyze, comprehend, synthesize, recall, and generate new ideas. 
In a mind map, information is structured in a way that resembles much more closely how your brain actually works. Since it is an activity that is both analytical and artistic, it engages your brain in a much, much richer way, helping in all its cognitive functions. It is easy and FUN!

Baiba Svenca's insight:

A great post sharing experience of using mind maps for integrated learning with primary students.

Visual Root - create collaborative, live mind maps

Visual Root - create collaborative, live mind maps | Digital Presentations in Education | Scoop.it
Forum-style, collaborative mind maps.

Visual root is a place to create online, collaborative mind-maps using video, images, and text.

Practically, the goal is for one person to start with an idea, or topic, and for other people to be able expand and improvise on that idea using different forms of media.

You could also view the site as an image-board of sorts, where there's an initial post or thread, and image and video (and text) responses to that thread and the entire thread has a mind-map like structure.

Baiba Svenca's insight:

A very interesting application which produces irregular mind maps from one "root" that can be an idea, a concept, an image etc.

The maps are created by the users, they are interactive and "live", you can move the nodes around, interact with other people, vote on individual nodes, zoom in and out, share portions of maps.

Great for collaborative school projects and presentations.

Welcome to mindmapping.com | Digital Presentations in Education | Scoop.it

Mindmapping.com provides information on creating mind maps, mind mindmapping software and the theory behind mind mapping.

Mind mapping is a highly effective way of getting information in and out of your brain. Mind mapping is a creative and logical means of note-taking and note-making that literally "maps out" your ideas.

All Mind Maps have some things in common. They have a natural organizational structure that radiates from the center and use lines, symbols, words, color and images according to simple, brain-friendly concepts. Mind mapping converts a long list of monotonous information into a colorful, memorable and highly organized diagram that works...
