This looks like an interesting platform for supporting interactive learning. There is a free trial subscription, but for a useable adoption plan it will cost about $20 a month.

For some people mind mapping and concept mapping may represent the same technique, however, there are some differences. This article compares these two terms and lists their similarities and differences in a simple mind map (or a concept map?).

Betty Clevenger's curator insight, October 14, 2013 11:34 AM

Ready to go retro?  This video re-introduces the 1970s concept of mind mapping!  Great tool for your special needs students!

Stacks is an amazing feature that allows you to place multiple ideas in one stack of stickies that becomes its own storm. Stacks provides a way to group similar ideas or establish a hierarchy for a group of ideas. Stacks also enables you to have a series of linked storms. Locking Stickies and Title stickies are just two of the many new features that have been added.

Diigo - Better reading and research with annotation, highlighter, sticky notes, archiving, bookmarking & more.

Diigo - Better reading and research with annotation, highlighter, sticky notes, archiving, bookmarking & more. | Edtech for Schools | Scoop.it
Diigo is a powerful research tool and a knowledge-sharing community
Christine Bushong's insight:
Read more effectively with annotation tools as you browse around the web. Add digital highlighters and sticky notes whether on PC, tablets, or mobile, and have them always be where you left them when you return! Print to mark-up? No longer necessary. Better recall? Proven! Create reports with your annotations? just a few clicks, and no more copy & paste into Word or email.Build your personal library in the cloud, with links, pages, notes, pictures etc, never to be lost, and ready to be accessed anywhere. Of course, those digital highlights, sticky notes and screenshots you added while going around the web automatically go into your library.Say goodbye to broken links and lost treasures The web is dynamic - valuable content you found earlier is often no longer there when needed. Diigo archives the webpages for the links you save. Better yet, the archived pages are fully searchable. So do not just bookmark, save to Diigo!Provide feedback and catch attention with annotation or screenshots Want to draw attention to a particular paragraph to your Twitter followers? Highlight it and tweet. Want to comment on a student’s writing? Use sticky notes for inline commenting. Want to provide feedback on a web design? Capture the page and mark it up.Organize your information as little or as much as you want. Since Diigo provides powerful search capabilities, the simple act of saving or annotating something, often with just one-click, will enable you to find it easily later. But of course, when you do want better organization, for easier review, for connecting the dots, for better sharing, for presentation, or whatever, Diigo provides unsurpassed organization capabilities, with both tagging and lists, to suit different needs.Share information as much or as little as you want One advantage of storing information in the cloud is that you can share them easily when you want to. Each piece of information can be set as private or public on Diigo. If you are an extrovert and like to share your passion and showcase who you are, make public as the default! If you are introvert, keep them all private! Want to send a whole collection to someone? just a few clicks away.Enable better collaboration on information for any group, large or small. Too little or too much sharing with email? Build a group knowledge repository for your family, your class, your team, or your entire company; each group member can add and subscribe to it, and browse and search it. Better yet, group members can interact with on-the-page annotations. So imagine your class are all reading the same Wikipedia article, and commenting and discussing right on the page!
