Tools are available to create a visual mind map
Use shapes, arrows, text, word art and imported images to build a visual mind map for any task.
Sharing allows for collaboration
Groups of students can collaborate and share ideas on the same mind map from locations near and far. Digital brainstorming sessions provide all students with an opportunity to contribute, unlike traditional brainstorming sessions which encourage contributions from the "quick thinkers" in the room.
Contributors are assigned their own color and the revision history highlights and tracks changes to any Google Doc. It's easy to see what each student has contributed to the big picture.
Templates are available
Some generous and innovative users have created and shared templates for everyone to use. Use them as a starting point or a model to create your own templates for students.
