# MindMup

MindMup is an online mind mapping service that integrates with Google Drive. It redefines mind mapping by allowing users to create mind maps online, “store them in the cloud and access from anywhere, collaborate and share mindmaps with colleagues and friends” (MindMup, 2018, para. 1). It also allows attachments of various formats, such as text and pictures, and lends itself to a wide range of educational purposes such as note taking, concept mapping, writing, planning, and knowledge centered cooperative learning.

## MindMup & the SAMR Model

• Substitution: In a English class, students can use MindMup to create a simple word web, print it out, and turn in the word web map to the teacher, rather than drawing a word web on paper.
• Augmentation: In math class, students can create a process flow chart on how to divide fractions using MindMup and send the link to the teacher for viewing and editing.
• Modification: In science class, students can create a multimodal storyboard mindmup to showcase the rock cycle.
• Redefinition: Students collaborate with each other online to develop a plot for a story through MindMup. The teacher invites a famous writer to interact with students and help them with the plot. (Note: Gold account required for real-time collaboration on MindMup).
