  • Mind42 is a software application that supports the creation of mind maps. It’s a specialized tool to quickly create, manage and edit the kind of data structure required for mind maps. Of course mind maps can be used for nearly everything, from to do lists to knowledge collections, but there are better suited tools for that (for example it also would be possible to write a letter with Paint, but nobody would do that). So Mind42 is not a multiple purpose diagramming tool, it’s really about entering thoughts, arranging and refining them, and exploring ideas in a graphical way.
    Mind42 is a web application. This means, it’s basically a more intelligent web site. Therefore Mind42 (and the data you created with it) is available everywhere where you have access to the internet, and you don’t have to download or install anything. On the other hand this means, it’s only available online and there is no downloadable

  • This wiki is great for computer teachers! Or any teacher that works on typing in class. It allows the student to go on the site and type their lesson for the day. It allows you to watch the students typing as a video playback. It shows students on how to sit when typing and where their fingers should be placed as well. This would be great for a student who is absent as well so they won’t miss an assignment.

  • This wiki runs on three functions: learn, look, and create. With the learn function, there is a virtual source of educational “posters” created by other learners to teach visitors to the side about their country. These “posters” range in topic from very general to very specific. Some of the educational posters are in another language; as a Spanish teacher, I love this! What a great way to have students practice! The look feature allows users to view glogs created by other global users. It gives the user a vision of the country from the perspective of the creator, rather than just general information. The create portion of the wiki teaches users how to use Glogster to create the online “posters.”
