How I Use It
I used the application for note-taking and brainstorming before a project. I work in theory but there are other applications that work more fluently.
My Take
I was very excited to use mindomo in my class. I have had great success with Popplet and was hoping that this program could be used in a mobile interface. Unfortunately, I felt that the interface was a little to confusing for my 7th and 8th graders. I would usually try a product multiple times before determining if it was essential but I quickly went back to Popplet.
