Tech Tip Tuesday: Use Popplet to Mimic Graphic Organizers

A few weeks ago, I highlighted a mind-map generator called Bubbl.us. Today, we’re going to look at another great mind-mapping tool called Popplet.

Popplet can be used on the Web or on an iPad and is simple to use. You start with a blank board and double click to create your first Popplet.  You’ll be presented with a window where you can type text, use the drawing tool, or upload images or videos. You can change the color and size of the Popplet as well as the color and size of the text inside.

Once you’ve created your first Popplet, you can drag or click to create a second,  linked one with all of the same features.

Sharing the Popplet is also easy; users can zoom in and out of the Popplet to examine detail more closely.  This would be an excellent tool to use with students who need to organize information visually!

Here is a sample Popplet on stars created by a student.
