With MindMeister, students can brainstorm ideas, work together to develop them, and then share and present their thinking in visual form. This collaborativemind-mapping tool from MeisterLabs helps students make visual connections to the information they’re learning. It also helps students develop and defend arguments and ideas and share them with others. Among MindMeister’s features is the capability to gather notes and links and access relevant mind maps of other students. MindMeister also takes students through the analytical process and breaks down information into simpler concepts before developing arguments. Several students can work together on the same mind map and can correct and amend one another’s information.
