A couple of weeks ago Tony Vincent published a great infographic about creating flowcharts in Google Drawings. That infographic prompted me to take a look at some of the tools that students and teachers can use to create infographics and flowcharts online. But first, take a look at this video on how to make a mind map in Google Drawings.
Google Slides and PowerPoint both have capabilities for making interactive mind maps and flowcharts. Watch the videos below to see how to Google Slides and PowerPoint to make mind maps.
Connected Mind is a free mind mapping tool that you can use in your web browser and is also available as an iOS app and as an Android app.
Padlet is a tool that can be used for many things including exit tickets, KWL charts, and it even offers a nice feature that will let you collaboratively create flowcharts.
