Best iPad Apps for ESL Teachers #6 - Dropmind Lite

Click to Download
Mindmaps are  very useful tools for many students, whether they are used for vocabulary, grammar, writing concepts, or basically any subject that could be learned easier by visualizing information.

DropMind is an app that allows students to create custom mindmaps using various colors,shapes, fonts, and designs.  The "Lite" version is free and is pretty capable for students' needs.

I like it for creating outlines of various essay forms, vocabulary connections, grammar points, etc.  Students have some area for creativity in using this app, and it could be helpful for those students who are visual learners. For an example of a mindmap that I have done, please click HERE.
