Wisemapping A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea. Especially in British English, the terms spidergram and spidergraph are more common,[1] but they can cause confusion with the term spider diagram used in mathematics and logic. Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid to studying and organizing information, solving problems, making decisions, and writing. The elements of a given mind map are arranged intuitively according to the importance of the concepts, and are classified into groupings, branches, or areas, with the goal of representing semantic or other connections between portions of information.

6-3-5 Brainwriting 6-3-5 Brainwriting (also known as the 6-3-5 Method, or Method 635) is a group creativity technique used in marketing, advertising, design, writing and product development originally developed by Professor Bernd Rohrbach in 1968.[1] Based on the concept of Brainstorming, the aim of 6-3-5 Brainwriting is to generate 108 new ideas in half an hour. In a similar way to brainstorming, it is not the quality of ideas that matters but the quantity. The technique involves 6 participants who sit in a group and are supervised by a moderator. Each participant thinks up 3 ideas every 5 minutes. The ideas are written down on a worksheet and passed on to the next participant.

The truth is that i haven't worked with the online mind mapping tool so far. I have made some maps with Freemind and downloaded it for the school laptops. It's available in greek, a detail i have in mind since my pupils are young and their english still need to be improved. Well, i've already started teaching it to my 6th grade students so as to create their own maps. I'm exploring your pearls right now to find new interesting ideas. If you have a suggestion for a tool, suitable for young learners, i'd be grateful if you let me know. i'll help them with the language detail as much as i can. by vana Feb 27
