4 Powerful Apps to Visually Sketch Ideas on iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Visual Thinking, Visual Learning, Visual Literacy | Scoop.it

"One of the best techniques to catch and record ideas is through using visual graphs. Data that is visually encoded is more likely to be processed by the mind in a faster and easier way. This is probably the reason why students love it when comics and graphic are included in instruction. In this regard,  Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has curated a list of some powerful iPad apps that you and your students can use to visually grab ideas and create sketchy mindmaps. I invite you to check the collection below and share with us what you think of them."

As an avid mind mapper, I would like to add the following apps to the growing list: ThinkBuzan.com's iMindMap HD; Mindjet Maps; MindMaple, and iThoughts HD. Also, MindTools HD for the iPad (see mindtools.com) is a suite of tools covering a wide range of essential skills for students and workplace professionals alike.
Melissa Marshall's comment, September 23, 2013 11:02 PM
great, thanks Rick I will have a look at some of those! Evernote and Notability are my two personal faves, My students love Popplet for mind mapping and they draw a lot using Notability.

25 Top Concept-Mapping Tools For Visual Learning

25 Top Concept-Mapping Tools For Visual Learning | Visual Thinking, Visual Learning, Visual Literacy | Scoop.it

"Concept-mapping–or mind-mapping, idea-mapping, or some other variation that makes sense to you–is the practice of demonstrating the relationship between ideas in a map-like form.

 

Concept-mapping allows creators to articulate nuance, context, and interdependence between ideas in a very user-centered way. This makes them especially useful in education, whether you use them for pre-writing, research notes, or “back-mapping” a unit or unit assessment. They encourage macro-thinking, can provide a bridge to struggling writers who have trouble turning their thinking into prose, and are a powerful tool for visual learning."
