Grade Recommendation: 2nd and up
Specific Skill: Graphic organizer
For iPad, iPod, or Both: Both
This app enables students to organize information and ideas by creating "mind maps", sometimes called graphic organizers. They start with adding text to a center oval. Thoughts and ideas can be mapped out from there. This version allows them to change the style and color of the text.
This is one of those rare apps where the free version is more than adequate for a classroom setting. But feel free to upgrade to the full version ($6.99) to obtain more functionality.
