-Recently added to the UKEdChat Apple EduApps page is MindNode, a beautifully constructed mind mapping app.
Mind maps are a powerful way of visualising your thoughts and ideas, and within education can be a great way of getting pupils to work creatively to show their learning – building connections between their thinking resulting in, potentially, a great revision tool.
This app allows you to produce mind maps easily, with a clean interface that avoids clutter with unnecessary features. The maps are, therefore, readable, elegant and clear, which makes this a perfect app for classroom use either as a whole class tool projected on a whiteboard; within small group work; or as an individual tool to help organise thought processes.
Completed mind maps can be exported out as PDF, OPML, PNG, FreeMind or text file, so are easily shareable or printable. Simplicity and ease are key with this slick mind mapping app, and is worthy of its GBP£6.99* price. Click on the App Store image below to view/buy from the app store.
