E-Learning tools for Schools and Education

Looking for new tools this year?  See this wonderful assortment of tools collected by Jesper Isaksson and shared on the Bright Ideas blog.

Isaksson used the mindmap tool Mindomo. This tool could also be used for organizing a presentation or as a brainstorming tool with students. The free version requires setting up an account and is

Limited to:

  • 3 maps
  • Basic import and export
Most of the mindmap tools seem to operate on a fee schedule for extensive use.  There is  a video tutorial but you have to sign in to view it.  I also like that the website gives many good examples of these mindmaps and that they have embed codes. Again, to get the embed codes you need an account.

For those of you who have read Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard by Chip Heath and Dan Heath, there is a wonderful mindmap for all the concepts created by Anthony Johnson.  I suppose you could do a book talk from the mindmap!  See below:
