Alternative Mindmapping Apps

Alternative Mindmapping Apps | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it

Mind Mapping is one of those skills that students can really benefit from, whether it is just to organise what they need to know, showing what they already know or even scaffolding a piece of writing. I love the ease of mind mapping on the iPad especially those apps that allow you to go back and modify or enhance an existing mind map.
