      Hello Violeta,
      I have saved previous emails from Dan, Elizabeth, Andreas, Fernanda, and Susan on their experiences and suggestions concerning mind maps. I am like you and needed suggestions for this type of tool so saved these emails for future reference. I will paste their messages below. I hope you, Dan, Elizabeth, Andreas, Fernanda, and Susan won't mind me doing this. I just appreciated all your great words of wisdom.

      Strategy Mapping
      ����������� I'm doing some concept mapping using a free service that can be found at
      http://cmap. ihmc.us/
      ����������� Here's a link to one of my strategy maps: http://tinyurl. com/23aa9w
      ����������� I think a learning activity for youth might be to research and map
      strategies that would help them solve problems in their community, or map
      our their own strategies for learning and making a difference in the world.
      ����������� I'm sure this is probably taking place somewhere. Can anyone point to web
      sites that demonstrate this?

      Dan--
      I think
      <http://www.Gliffy. com>
      is excellent for creating mind maps--it's free and online.
      However, I don't know of anyone who has done such a map for solving
      problems in their community.
      Seems to me this would be a neat brainstorming activity: youths could
      sit in a group at the computer, list the activities they are thinking
      of and then create a Gliffy map to show how the different activities
      relate to each other and their goals.

      Hi,
      Here are a few other applications to create mind maps / concept maps.
      ����������� < http://www.mindomo. com/>
      < http://www.mindmeis ter.com/>
      < http://www.bubbl. us/>
      < http://thinkature. com/>
      If you try them, let us know what you think about them.
      Just sharing � because it is caring!
      Best wishes

      ����������� Andreas, those are all nice...need to work on them to find how I might
      use them but they are definitely fun tools. thanks!!!
      http://www.bubbl. us/appeals to me first-hand because the shapes and
      colors are attractive.. .I am working on finding how to add text....
      btw, where did you find these?
      Susan

      More on mapping:
      ����������� I've tried www.Gliffy.comand www.freemind. com and www.thinkature. com and they each have unique features. However, I was able to put more ideas
      together in a shorter time using the cMap tool. For instance, yesterday I
      created a page of metrics at - http://tinyurl. com/24fcgy
      ����������� These tools demonstrate what one person can do to illustrate his/her
      thinking. I think it's a much more difficult challenge getting multiple
      people to do the thinking and then work together to create these concept
      maps.
      ����������� My first goal is to find other tutor/mentor leaders who are mapping their
      own strategies (if you know any, let me know). If we can compare concept
      maps, we can see where we overlap and might work together, or where one of
      us might have a strength or a weakness, which could be fixed by borrowing
      from the other.
      ����������� If multiple programs were mapping their strategies, then the learning
      potential would also multiply and this could then lead to new maps, that
      would be blended strategies.
      ����������� Finally, if multiple programs were mapping their strategies, maybe we could
      demonstrate greater value to investors and donors, and have more of the
      resources we need to do the work we are describing with our maps.
      ����������� Dan

      Hi Webheads!
      Just to ask if you could recommend a good free tool to create mind maps.
      I want to be able to export them in pdf.
      Thanks.
      Violeta.

        Thank you Candace for collecting these messages.

        Since my last posting I've made progress on Geographic Information Systems
        maps, which can focus attention of people on all areas of a city, country
        or world where the same problem persists, but different people are working
        in relative isolation to solve the problem.

        I'm trying to create on-line communities where people will gather, share
        what they know. Learn from others, and work collectively to try to help each
        other be more effective in solving the problem where they are.

        At http://tutormentorconnection.ning.com you can see some of my new poverty
        maps (in the photo album). At http://tutormentor.blogspot.com you'll see
        how I write about these maps in an effort to draw more people together to
        use them.

        If you're able to get a discussion started within Webheads space, I'd be
        happy to participate as I can.

Your idea of an online community for these problems is awesome. I will look at�your link.
