Una muestra de que la crisis de la educación a todo nivel no es sólo un problema de América Latina, el Tercer Mundo, el Subdesarrollo... La Educación con mayúscula (los sistemas educativos oficiales, las empresas eductivas tradicionales, las academias formales, las discipinas rigidas, los tests estandarizados, y la producción intelectual del campo científico tradicional), no alcanza a cubrir las necesidades de aprendizaje y de inserción en el mundo laboral, o mejor no alcanza a cubri las necesidades de educación, con minúscula (derecho a aprender y a desarrollarse, deseo de hacerlo, diversidad)...

I track discussions about mind mapping on Twitter and in blogs, and I often hear or read the question "Which is the best mindmapping software?" Anyone who gives you a single, immediate answer either knows you and your mindmapping activities very well, or is likely recommending the one that they've become familiar with themselves.
"I put together a Google Doc form and asked educators to contribute their ideas. Over 80 suggestions were submitted, but I've distilled them down to the 20 terrific tools listed below.
