What they say[edit]

“Learning to learn. Learning to think. These are the true core skills that launch success for all students. At Inspiration Software(r), Inc. we’re dedicated to developing and providing visual thinking tools that help build a solid learning foundation for all students. Concept mapping software aimed at education. Use Inspiration Maps to help brainstorm, plan, organize and build thinking skills. Watch as students engage, create and learn as they build and organize their diagrams. With a single tap, turn your diagram into an outline that can be customized and expanded upon, then exported to a writing app”


Probably the best-known commercial concept mapping and mind mapping software (see also Kidspiration and Webspiration Classroom). Available on the desktop and in mobile forms. The iPad version is very flexible and capable, and is worth the cost. Inspiration Maps Lite is free and when I last looked, was little more than a demo.
