Another way to share our stories.

11 Mind Mapping Apps for the iPad

11 Mind Mapping Apps for the iPad | Social Media Resources & e-learning |

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.
