Bubble.us


Bubble.us is a Web 2.0 application that provides online mind mapping. There is plenty of mind mapping software available but it's usually fairly expensive and/or not very good. I have only just started playing with this site and, in the interests of experimentation, have invited members of this blog to take part in a collaborative mind mapping exercise linked to our Food for Thought project. You should have received an email from me fairly recently asking you to get involved. Once you've become a member of the site, I will receive notification. I can then allow you access to the mind map so that we can work together on it. Let's see if this kind of process is useful as a learning tool so that we can recommend it (or not) for use in the classroom.

This seems much more accessible than exploratree even if it lacks the latter application's amazing range of options and control. I suppose you want an application like this to feel intuitive so that allows you to develop and extend ideas fluently. I really like the idea of sharing and collaborating the bubbles - I can see that having lots of effective uses.

I had a very quick go and sent a sharing invite to Mr Nicholls. Why don't we try and all initiate or build on, our plans for the Shine Week event using this?

Just to say I have added a couple of questions to the Bubble.us 'Food for Thought' page. Have a go it's really easy to use.
