Great Concept Mapping tool: Bubbl.us
Here is yet another great concept mapping tool providing by my good friend "internet." Bubbl.us allows you to create sharp, fresh looking concept maps that help organize thoughts, opinions, outline a plan, show what you know, develop, create, discover, etc. With it's easy to use interface and sharp looking colors, your students will be begging you to assign more and more concept maps! Bubbl.us is a free service. Create an account in seconds and you will be on your way. Bubbl.us saves your work automatically, so you can work worry free that you will lose everything. Once your product is finished, you can export it as a JPEG (image) or a webpage outline. You can also work on concept maps as a "team" to create collaboration experiences that enrich the curriculum. This could be a tool you might want to try using with colleagues as well, if there is a event to plan, a special day to organize, or if you want to bounce ideas off each other. Bubbl.us is a tool that should have a spot in your teacher aresnal. Below is an example of what you can make with Bubbl.us.
