Specifically, the mind map is but a single example of what can be accomplished using a tool like Mindomo. Mind mapping can be used:
- To document classroom brainstorming sessions,
- To develop a timeline,
- To organize tasks,
- To flowchart processes,
- To cluster ideas,
- To present information in a classroom or for a presentation (instead of using a PowerPoint slideshow).
In the example at http://www.mindomo.com/view?m=38c41ea842988eb5177861fc90f77e46, Mindomo has been used to categorize and document a host of Web 2.0 applications (plus some desktop apps that might be useful for online and classroom instructors).
When using the mind map, hover your mouse pointer over each note icon to see related text, click the globe icon to jump to the website for the specified application, click the "+" sign to expand and display subtopics or (if visible) click the "-" sign to contract and hide subtopics.
How would you use this web 2.0 tool?
