I've never tried using diagrams and flow charts, but keep meaning to develop my ideas this way. Usually, the tools of the software need to be learned first and by then, I either typed up the description of my idea or it is forgotten. Maybe this is what I need.

This tool looks extremely friendly letting you draw a diagram or a mind map just using your finger, so if you have an iPad, give it a go!

Use Mindomo where you would have once used Inspiration - for making concept maps and graphic organizers to show the structure of a complex topic. Maps & organizers serve as good supports for writing by showing the structure of a complex/complicated topic in one, memorable place.

Joselu's curator insight, September 17, 2015 2:45 PM

Mindomo es una herramienta formidable para la generación de mapas mentales, conceptuales, organigramas, etc. Permite la comparación de concepto, estructura de los ensayos, análisis de personajes literarios e infinidad de posibilidades más, pero es de pago, salvo tres mapas gratuitos. Tengo que convencer a los profes de mi centro para trabajar con Mindomo y asumir el coste que no sube mucho más de un euro por alumno si llega a 350 alumnos e incluye a diez profesores.
