Digital brainstorming and mind-mapping are relatively new concepts in the world of graphic organizers. One of my favorite new tools for creating these digital organizers is www.bubbl.us

There are a multitude of uses for this free website as demonstrated by my basic example below:

Bubbl.us can be used at the elementary level to create a basic concept map, visual brainstorm cloud or even as a project demonstrating knowledge of a topic.

It can also be used on a larger scale as an assignment for secondary students or as part of business presentation or proposal.

The website’s interface is both easy to use and navigate. It gives users the ability to control bubble color, font color and the organization of the map itself.

I have personally used this website with my students, and also myself in graduate school as a way to organize notes on a given topic. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking to digitize their graphic organizers.
