MindGenius is a ‘mind mapping’ software tool for making ‘bubble notes’ or ‘mind maps’ – visual diagrams that allow you to explore the links between ideas. Many teachers in humanities subjects use ‘mind maps’ to motivate students doing essay plans and so on. I’ll be using one to help forensic science students produce a report on forensic ICT.

  • The software is well supported by a good MindGenius FAQ from Liverpool University
  • All FE Colleges can have a free licence for MindGenius for a limited time as a result of a JISC deal
  • I like using this kind of tool (I have used Inspiration previously) on a projector to encourage collective mapping out and discussion of ideas
