Inspiration

This software program provides an integrated visual and written outline environment to support visualizing, thinking and writing. The process can be used in all phases of learning from brainstorming, organizing, clarifying/analyzing information, and developing thinking skills.  Students build visual diagrams or graphic organizers to represent their ideas, which can be converted into an organized outline where they are able to continue with the writing process. This type of support increases the possibility of strengthening written communication.
