Popplet: Mind Mapping on iPads

Mind Mapping with iPads

Horry County Schools is in the process of rolling out 1:1 iPads to all middle school students in our district.  Popplet is one of the apps we are encouraging teachers to use.  It is a great tool for mind-mapping, brainstorming, etc.  I ran across this post earlier this evening on TeachThought titled "10 Mind Mapping Strategies for Teachers."  It has some great ideas to get those wheels turning and to help teachers think of different ways they can begin to use mind mapping tools, such as Popplet, in their classroom.  

Within the article, there is a suggestion to use mind maps as a form of assessment:
Assessment: A great way to use Mind Maps for assessment is to ask students to express their ideas about a topic in a Mind Map before and after a class. Students will retain the information better and it will also reassure teachers that students remember and understand the knowledge.
I was intrigued by a few of the ideas and had to share!
