Mind mapping is a method that works for quite a lot of people. Brain storming, idea mapping, thought generation, think tanks – call it what you will. Traditionally done on large pieces of paper, why not use your iPad to create mind maps? You could use these for your own purposes, or “convert” those large flip charts into a smaller, digital version.

ThinkBook transforms your iPad into an organizational marvel. Use it to create notebooks and outlines that live and breathe under your fingertips.
ThinkBook has something for everyone: - Students can keep class notes, add questions and todos, then use ThinkBook's unique 'finder' notes to make a dashboard showing unanswered questions and outstanding todos for each class. - Professionals can use ThinkBook to record meeting minutes and keep project notes. Plan work by grouping todos into projects. Create dashboards showing you the next few todos for each active project. - Readers can take notes from books they read, tag each section with the topics covered, search for those topics later.
ThinkBook adapts to YOU, not the other way around.
If you like keeping pages of plain notes that's fine! Put the pages into notebooks and create a library.
Like outlines? Use ThinkBook's indentation gestures to add structure to your notes, then collapse whole sections to see only their headings. Mix and match to YOUR needs.
One of the best things about ThinkBook is the innovative slider; you can push notes, pages, notebooks... anything into it. Then go anywhere in your library and drag them out. It's an incredibly fast way of re-arranging your information.
ThinkBook gives you:
- Plenty of note types; text notes, todos, questions and projects. Notebooks and pages behave just like other notes, move and organize them however you like. - Special 'finder' notes to create dashboards. - The slider, a brand new way to make new notes and rearrange, move, copy and delete existing ones. - Tags, tag everything you can see. They're inherited, tag a notebook with 'work' and every note in it will be treated as work. - Fast search for text and tags. - Three themes, including two colour matched to your iPad. The white theme on a white iPad is a real crowd pleaser, you have to see it! - Dropbox integration. Backup and restore to Dropbox, export and import notes, pages, notebooks and projects as text, work on them on your PC, then import them back into ThinkBook. All these features also work using iTunes file sharing. - A graphical tutorial to quickly bring you up to speed and a full set of instructions (as a notebook!).'
Usage: ThinkBook's interface is very fast and efficient but it IS a little different. This is what you need to know: - ThinkBook uses gestures to indent and move notes. The left and right sides of the screen accept different gestures. - On the left of the screen you can drag a note left and right to change the indentation. - On the right of the screen you can drag a note right to push it into the slider. - Tap on the slider to see all the things it can do. - To delete notes push them into the slider then select 'clear clipboard' from the slider actions.

Sie wollen nicht den gesamten hochinteressanten Text lesen, sondern nur wissen, welchen Editoren Sie denn jetzt wählen sollen? Okay, hier kommt´s:
* Windowsanwender nehmen BlogJet (1. Wahl, aber 40$) oder BlogDesk (2. Wahl, aber kostenlos). ** Macanwender nehmen Blogo für 25 $. Auch gut ist MarsEdit, aber der Mehrpreis von 15 $ rechtfertigt sich nicht. *** iPhone-/iPad-Anwender nehmen BlogPress (2,39 €).
BlogPress ist für 2,39 € im Appstore erhältlich. Zu diesem Preis kann es sowohl auf dem iPhone, wie auch auf dem iPad in einer optimierten Version genutzt werden. BlogPress unterstützt die gängigsten Plattformen, darunter WordPress, Blogger, TypePad, Drupal, Joomla und Live Journal. Während meines Test stürzte BlogPress gelegentlich ab, verlor dabei jedoch keine Daten. Leider kann BlogPress nicht mehr wie bislang in einer Liteversion kostenlos ausprobiert werden. Die 2,99 € indes können jedenfalls iPad-Nutzer gefahrlos in die Hand nehmen, ohne sich im Nachgang übermäßig ärgern zu müssen. ...
Visual recording is similar to audio recording: they both use the same concept that is : recording. One uses voice and the other uses visual cues like diagrams, charts, lines, arrows...etc. Think about visual recording as visual mind mapping.
This is Visual Recording and NOT (in this case) Visual Facilitation

Skyfire’s Award-Winning browser is the most popular browser on iPad. Here are a few reasons why:
NEW: Introducing Skyfire Web Browser for iPad with ‘HotSwap’. The App Store’s #1 Top Paid Utility App of 2011 (USA) now supports multiple-users.
With HotSwap, family and friends can share an iPad and ‘swap’ to their own personal profile and have their bookmarks, open tabs, social network logins, email accounts and settings reappear just as they left them! HotSwap eliminates the tedious five minute log-out, log-in and set-up process required each time the iPad changes hands in your family, enabling immediate access to personal browsing preferences and social settings for up to four separate users. Simply leave the iPad on the coffee table for the next user to ‘swap’ to their profile - finally a solution to the ‘shared iPad’ problem.
Put the “i” back in your family’s iPad with Skyfire for iPad and HotSwap!

Digital Game-based Learning (DGBL) nutzt das Lern- und Motivationpotential von digitalen Spielen, zum erlernen von “regulärem” Wissen. Das erlernte Wissen soll auch über das Spiel hinaus genutzt werden, z.B. zur Vorbereitung auf Prüfungen.Diesen Ansatz greift Lernfreak auf. Lernfreak präsentiert in Zusammenarbeit mit der Maria GmbH, den iOS-Spezialisten von Socialbit und den erfahrenen Examenslehrern des Repetitoriums Heimann & Ritter eine kleine Revolution: Das erste iPad-Comic-Actionspiel für Juristen, mit dem man ganz nebenbei die wichtigsten strafrechtliche Definitionen auswendig lernen kann.
Bei der “Jagd nach dem Katzenkönig (der Titel des Spiels geht zurück auf den berühmten Katzenkönig-Fall des BGH (BGHSt 35, 347)) schießt der Spieler auf strafrechtliche Begriffe um möglichst schnell eine juristische Definition zu reproduzieren. Die Anwendung spricht die wichtigsten Faktoren für effektives Lernen an: Sehen und aktives Handeln. Letzteres dadurch, dass der Spieler die Begriffe auf dem iPad mit dem Finger “berührt”: Damit wird abstraktes Jurawissen “greifbar”.
