Excellent desktop publishing and organizational software - FREE FOR EDUCATORS AND STUDENTS
I cannot rave enough about the ease of use and quality of this product. The bonus for me is that as an educator, I can upgrade myself and my students to a premium account for free: https://www.lucidpress.com/pages/education/K12. Just fill out the form and Lucidpress will respond quickly. My account was upgraded in less than 48 hours from the time I submitted the application.
How I Use It
I have used LucidPress and LucidCharts for the past two years and love it. My students use LucidPress to create newspaper and magazine projects and LucidCharts for organizational charts such as mind maps. Both programs are intuitive to use and they tie directly into the students Google Drive. This is very beneficial if your district is a Google Apps For Education (GAFE) district.
