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
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?
