5 Terrific Mind Mapping Apps for iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educator Professional Development | Scoop.it

"Today I am sharing with you a set of great  apps to visually capture your ideas and share them with others. The apps below are designed to enable you to easily create mindmaps and concepts to illustrate abstract topics and enhance learning.

The apps I am including below are selected based on their powerful performance and practical usablity. I know there are tons of other similar apps in the iTunes app store but the ones I handpicked for you below are ideal for educational settings and I would also recommend them for students."
