I have used this site for a year now. I really like it as a way to work with students that are concrete sequential as well as with students that are more abstract.

Visual Root - create collaborative, live mind maps

Visual Root - create collaborative, live mind maps | immersive media | 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 curator insight, December 24, 2012 1:06 PM

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.

Slatebox helps you draw and share ideas very easily on "slates" that kids love to use. You can spend less time telling them how to use Slatebox and more time conveying the idea because it's so straightforward.

You can give new students logins with PINs instead of email. Plus, you'll see everything they do in real-time. You'll be able to assign new slates as homework based on templates you produce, and manage all of their work from a single portal.

A new mind mapping or 'note mapping' tool that is simple and requires no great skill. Create mind maps or flashcards from your notes.

The service is free, you just need to register with your email or Facebook account. I like the option that you can present your mind map straight from the website, no need to download the map.

Looks good for using with students.

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.
