Website Wednesday

Website Wednesday is a regular feature in which we highlight one (or a couple) of sites from the Billions floating around the Intertoobz that just might help you with your Herculean task of educating inquiring minds. Any and all suggestions for future editions are welcome.

I recently came across the mind mapping program MindMeister on a “best of” list for free online teaching tools. I’ve never used it, but it looks like it could definitely be a useful brainstorming tool, especially for visual learners. I could also see it working as a great organizational application for students who are writing research papers. If anyone has used MindMeister, or can think of any good classroom applications, please chime in.

  1. That looks so cool!
    I’ve tried other mapping sites but this one looks better. i like that you can add images and links and the history part was really cool so you can see the entire history of the mapping process. Seems like this could be useful in our classrooms in a lot of ways.

    Thanks! I’m going to try it with a couple of different projects and I’ll let you know how it goes. If anyone else out there is interested in checking it out, let me know what you think.

  2. This is fantastic!! I wonder if you could do a group one that the whole class could contribute to. Anyone know how to do that?

    • I think they talk about how one might do that through sharing it with others’ email addresses, assuming they create an account, right around the 3’50” mark of the video. Unless I misunderstood that part (plausible)…
