Mindmapping Collaborative Applications for Lesson Plans and Presentations

I am amazed I haven’t heard of these apps before. I attended a Try It On Monday tech seminar in Tokyo and one of the presenters was introducing two different apps that I found so interesting and ultimately useful for education. The first is great for creating collaborative mindmapping clouds and is called “Text 2 Mindmap”. You can create a beautiful mindmap and save as a pic file. The best thing is that it can be collaborative.

The second app is called Mind42. This one I found particularly intriguing. It is an elegant way to create a lesson that is multi media oriented. It is also great if you would like to post your lesson afterwards on a web site. The visual mapping display can link: docs, youtubes, and sound files. The end result is a beautiful and clean display of pods that you can enter as you see fit. You can start a lesson with them all closed and open them one at a time. You could assign different students to make a pod of their own that is added to the whole. I like posting a lot of sites and info that are related to a topic as I find them. I like mind42 for this purpose as I can link everything there and then open them only when and if I need the info during a lecture. I think I will be using this app a lot in the future.

Yet another app for mind mapping is MindMeister. It is similar to the other. With this one you can collaborate as well as share and connect with your iPad or iPhone.
