Simple Mind 03/29/2012
Free- Simple Mind is a great brainstorming app. You can create a simple or complex web, or mind map with the touch of your fingers! You start out with your central theme or idea. From there you can add different sections and sub-sections to your web going as in-depth as you need to. You can move and organize all of your information and the app automatically color coordinates everything for you. You can choose between a variety of themes that will sort through various colors and backgrounds.
At Edmunds, we recently used this app to brainstorm podcasting ideas that will help Edmunds. Students came up with ways to teach younger students on how to be safe, academics (abc's addition, etc.), and other general things the students thought would help make Edmunds a better place. Classroom teachers also like this app because it is a great tool for something that students should be doing on a regular basis. Thinking about their own thoughts!
