Inspiration Software has been making mind-mapping and concept mapping tools for twenty-five years. Their tools have helped millions of students learn to visually organize ideas, represent knowledge, and identify and classify relationships among ideas.
Their flagship product, Inspiration, is now available in a variety of of formats, including web-based and mobile versions. Kidspiration takes the essential functions of the Inspiration product and presents it in an intuitive, simplified format targeted to younger learners. Classroom editions allow teachers to easily manage student accounts.
Use Inspiration for visual mapping, outlining, writing and making presentations. Brainstorm ideas, structure your thoughts and visually communicate concepts to strengthen understanding with the Diagram and Map Views. To take notes, organize information, and structure writing for plans, papers and reports, use the integrated Outline View to focus on main and supporting ideas and to clarify thinking in written form. With Inspiration’s Presentation Manager, transform your diagrams, mind maps and outlines into polished presentations that communicate ideas clearly and demonstrate understanding and knowledge.
You can use the software to create webs, idea maps, mind maps, concept maps, graphic organizers, process flows, and other diagrams for thinking, organizing and writing. Use these proven visual thinking and learning techniques to brainstorm ideas, explore and explain relationships, and integrate new knowledge with what you already know. Inspiration encourages deeper, more critical thinking and that improves creativity, comprehension and retention.
