Bubbl.us is a free brainstorming web tool that allows you to create your own "mind maps" online and share your ideas with others. After you have drafted your ideas you can save, print, or even embed them into your own website. This website can be used in different ways: brainstorming ideas, building a family tree, creating flow charts, and much more. Ben Davis, an 11th grade English teacher said that web 2.0 technology allowed his students to organize their thoughts for a research paper. Teachers have found Bubbl.us very beneficial, not only for the students, but also for themselves by creating handouts, presentations and notes.
