MindMeister - a way you and your class can collaborate and create mind maps electronically! I always hated making mind maps because they seemed too messy and I could never seem to space and organize them correctly. This solves all those issues, and has perks like collaboration too!
Creating a stimulating & effective mind map: 1. Start with the central topic 2. Use an image as your central idea to help with imagination 3. Use color to stimulate the brain and creativity 4. Connect “Branches” to the central image to establish structure & relationships. 5. Use curves – this looks more interesting visually 6. Use one main topic or keyword per line 7. Use LOTS of images...”a picture paints a thousand words"
