Gliffy

Gliffy is everything a concept mapping tool should be. First, it is FREE! Second, it does not require an account or download! It reminds me a lot of inspiration with the exception that it is FREE!
A few of the things our students can make are:
  • Concept Maps
  • Flow Charts
  • Floor Plans
  • Network Diagrams
  • Interactive Venn Diagrams
Sample:
To introduce my students to this tool I had them make a quick floor plan of their bedroom. Honestly, this took them about ten minutes.
Next, I asked them to make a simple chart to demonstrate their knowledge of Microsoft office.

I believe that Gliffy is an amazing site that we should all take a look at. Did I mention it was free?

We used Gliffy for a while too but then we ran out of their free space! They only let everyone make 5 diagrams and then you have to pay.

We did find another alternative which we've loved - Lucid Chart which is free for teachers and students. Dare I say it's better than Gliffy? :)
