A lot of mind mapping tools lock you into using straight lines between elements, but Connected Mind is not one of them. Connected Mind allows you to create mind maps in any configuration that you like. It is a Chrome Web Store app which means that you save your work online using your Google Account credentials. As I demonstrate in my video embedded below, Connected Mind lets you use images and or text bubbles in your mind maps. The labeling options in Connected Mind are almost limitless too. Watch my video below to learn more about Connected Mind.
Applications for Education
Connected Mind could be a good app for students to use to develop mind maps from scratch or from an existing image or file they upload. In general, I find mind mapping to be a great exercise for students to do while planning a video project. I also use mind mapping when planning a lesson unit for my courses.
