It seems that laying out a graphic organizer for specific topics should be obvious. The resources listed here will get you started. They also present the opportunity for a teacher to draw on their features to have learners create their own mind maps.

How To Make Students Better Online Researchers

Getting kids to really focus on what exactly they are searching for, and then be able to further distill idea into a few key specific search terms is a skill that we must teach students, and we have to do it over and over again. We never question the vital importance of teaching literacy, but we have to be mindful that there are many kinds of “literacies”. An ever more important one that ALL teachers need to be aware of is digital literacy.
