This week i used Kidspiration for the first time, which is a much more engaging alternative to the adult version. This thought mapping software is perfect for visualizing thought processes and organizing brainstorming sessions. I am personally not a visual learner, and the only option for auditory learners is a creepy voice that repeats whatever words your mouse pointer happens to be hovering on. But I still thought of a bunch of ways to use this in a classroom. It is unbelievably easy to use, with everything you need a click or two away. Some of the ways i thought of using this in a class are: discipline rules and consequences, the water cycle, book summaries, and note taking just to name a few. The ease of use and quick navigation of this program also makes it ideal for in-class use.
