    Mind42 is a fast, easy web application for creating mind maps in your classroom. Students can create multiple mind maps for free and can incorporate not only their ideas but images, text, todos, and can customize the look/feel of their mind maps. This tool also allows for collaboration so that students could create a mind map together under their own identities.
