11 Mind Mapping Apps for the iPad

11 Mind Mapping Apps for the iPad | Transliteracy & eLearning | Scoop.it

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.

I haven't had a chance to use this yet, but if it lives up to the blurb it should be good. One of the features of mobile learning is the "small chunks" of learning thto users expect, so this could offer a good way to provide that.

Such wonderful ideas and sometimes all it takes is a few more curves and yet I find myself wondering, where is the balance between spaces carved out for physical play and those for imaginative play (in between the covers of a book). How do we divide the spaces such that children who want to play can play and others who want a place to hide and read can cuddle up in a cosy corner.
