Here are a few of the popular resources teachers are using to reinforce and teach thinking and learning (click here for updates):
- Bubbl.us–simple to use and free, no log-in, a bit quirky (IMHO)
- MindMeister–free trial for education
- Scapple--downloaded tool
- Spicy Nodes
- SpiderScribe–add text, pictures, files, more; free sign-up, fee for more than 3
- The Crossing–attempts to cross a gorge; some fail; all result in success
