How I Use It
I used this tool extensively while reading "The Devine Comedy." Each of my classes had a group web that we would create together, projected from the classroom desktop, to keep all the allusions to classical, mythological, biblical, and historical figures. By the end, each class' web looked similar, but different. After using Bubbl.us as a whole class, many students went on to use it for pre-writing and pre-presentation planning.
My Take
The process of using this tool is dynamic and organic. It allows just enough freedom to customize without giving so much freedom that students get lost is "creating." At an art academy, this is an excellent tool that focuses students' though process so they can spend more time making truly inspiring works of creativity!
