In class, we looked at Coggle for mindmapping. You can find plenty of information about mindmapping and more tools, as well, by searching around the web. Here’s a Lifehacker article that gives a decent broad overview: How to Use Mind Maps to Unleash Your Brain’s Creativity and Potential
We looked at LucidChart as a way to quickly design diagrams. Other examples include Gliffy and Draw.io. These can help design professional-looking diagrams like flow charts and family trees.
I suggested that, if you have the leeway, you might be able to get away with a subtly funny flow chart for a book report, or maybe even something history related. Or maybe design a flow chart for procedures in a science or math class. A creative flow chart can be a unique way to “demonstrate your understanding” of a topic.
You can use your Google login with each of these apps, and save your stuff to your Google Drive, if you want. For printing, be sure to save your files as PDFs.
