A great ICT tool to use during brain storms, collecting information, sorting information, understanding information, or explaining a concept. Visual and involved program that engages students in their learning.

Daniel Ramirez's curator insight, May 20, 2015 8:09 PM

This is a great ICT tool as it encourages students to do  brain storms, collecting information, sorting information, understanding information, or explaining a concept. All of these skills are developed as this ICT tool provides the opportunity for students to construct a mind map online! This is Visual and involved program that engages students in their learning and very simple to use.
