How I Use It
Middle school E/LA students enjoyed using this for prewriting. The ability to easily move bubbles around once created helped visual learners better organize ideas and details. Additionally, having templates to choose from helped those who needed a jumpstart on formatting ideas. Students who had more detailed ideas for their writing were a bit frustrated by lack of customization; students who were needed more guidance were not overwhelmed by too many options.
My Take
Very easy to implement, low learning curve. Didn't need to spend a lot of time teaching the tool before being able to get into the content.
