BridgingApps just published the following BridgingApps Reviewed App on the site:
Kidspiration Maps is an easy to use mind mapping tool for iPad that allows the user to visualize their thoughts about a topic in an easy-to-use format. Mind mapping tools can be used to plan writing projects, both fiction and non-fiction, by allowing users to plan out details or categorize facts about a topic in an organized way. Mind mapping can also be used to organize facts and details when learning about a new topic.
Teachers have long used the concept of mind mapping on paper for teaching writing skills to students at the elementary level. This app provides a great paperless (& portable) solution that could prove useful for students just learning to write stories, for those with writing difficulties, or with learning disabilities that affect their ability to organize information.
