Better biz storytelling tools -- Visual Thinking Landscape + cool videos! | Visualize: problem solving and innovation | Scoop.it

Visual thinking is a way to organize your thoughts and improve your ability to think and communicate. It’s a way to expand your range and capacity by going beyond the linear world of the written word, list and spreadsheet, and entering the non-linear world of complex spacial relationships, networks, maps and diagram.

Biggerplate is the largest source of free mind maps offering a mind map library with hundreds of free templates for Mindjet MindManager, iMindMap, Xmind and MindGenius maps.
ghbrett's insight:

Mind Mapping is a structured way to gather your thoughts in either graphics or text. There are many applications for tablets and computers for mindmapping. However, many people prefer using paper. Some people use colored markers and large easel paper to ensure they have room for all the information they intend or may possibly create.

Based in London, MRK creates incredible 3D generative visualizations of scientific theories. The diagrams shown at the link of organelles and cellular processes, as well as many other mind-blowing works, are available for purchase as prints as well. Watching The Flow below as well as the video below it is suggested, as it shows ten to the power of minus five as you travel through a capillary into a world of red and white blood cells, and into a lymphocyte to see its porous nucleus.

7 Great iPad Apps to Promote Visual Thinking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

7 Great iPad Apps to Promote Visual Thinking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Visualize: problem solving and innovation | Scoop.it

Today while I was looking for a citation from " Making Thinking Visible: How to Promote Engagement, Understanding, and Independence for All Learners " http://ow.ly/k2SpU ; , it dawned on me to compile a list of the  popular iPad apps that promote visual thinking. Making Thinking Visible is by all means a must read for those of you interested in knowing how thinking can be made visible at any grade level and across all subject areas through the use of effective questioning, listening, documentation, and facilitative structures called thinking routines. Another book I have in my shelf and which is more or less similar to the one cited above is " Blah Blah Blah: What To Do When Words Don't Work " http://ow.ly/k2Svy ; in which Dan walks his readers through the different practices of making thinking vivid with less words."


Via John Evans
ghbrett's insight:

There are many choices for iPads as well as Android tablets. Some include plugins that you can pay to add. Some of the more complex apps include the ability to paste in photographs or other images. While there are even note taker apps that include the function for adding audio -- whether from a meeting speaker or from yourself explaining the ideas you are capturing.

 

One thing to consider when using these applications is whether or not you need a better suited stylus. There are a variety now that are more responsive, thinner, use BlueTooth for greater control.
