Tiny Bubbles

Yesterday’s tool, Mindmeister, catered to the mind mapping capabilities of older students.  Today I bring your Bubbl.us.  Bubbl.us is geared toward our sub-high school students.  This easy to use tool allows students to brainstorm quickly, easily and in five easy steps.
  • Step 1: Push the button – There is a START button on the home page to help you begin the brainstorming process.
  • Step 2: Fill in the essentials – This is where you sign up for your account but this is optional.  Signing up for an account allows users to connect with other users. 
  • Step 3: Start with a central thought. 
    • Press ENTER to continue that thought OR
    • Press TAB to begin a new set of thought bubbles.
  • Step 4: Save your work.  Always remind students to save their work because technology is great but you never know when the PC will freak out.
  • Step 5: Share with others.  This is essential for content collaboration.  Yay for cooperative learning!!!
