I just added a few great resources to one of the sub sites of Open Court Resources, Thinking Maps.org
I added links to:
podcast from the Accidental Technologist Blog with great examples of thinking maps used creatively in the classroom
a ten minute film from the creators of thinking maps which is a good refresher/introduction for anyone on using the maps
and reading and writing homework using circle and flow maps contributed by City Teacher
Thanks to everyone for making these great ideas available. I hope to keep adding links to try and keep all of these resources accessible from one central location.
