Mind mapping on the iPad: Popplet - Sarah Madden

Popplet is a mind-mapping app that allows students to import text, images and videos to their diagrams. It is a really interactive programme for students on the iPad and their finished work becomes a colourful poster for them to revise from. I’ve used it to mind map a number of literary characters, track their relationships and even to timeline novels. The app’s ability to add pictures and colours means that students can colour code their work to make it more complex or weaker students can utilise more visual aids to help them revise.

It can also be used on the PC so you can project an example onto the board and guide them on how to use it.
