organicARTS' thought maps

organicARTS had a morning of review and action planning with Mary Schwarz, an arts consultant. This was an excellent session with lots of productive thinking. I really liked Mary's love of post it notes to generate and organise ideas. postitnoteseducationsmallThe challenge is to record these ideas for future discussion. I have been exploring the XMIND software which has done a rather good job. The ideas can be looked at in different ways and exported out as images, web pages and text outlines. Just what I wanted really. The software is free to download and cross platform. I am going to try it out with some 8-9 year olds next week along with VUE which offers similar features. When children ask how toget hold of the software to use at home then you know that things are working!!
