It is not often that I find two tools in one day that I think I will go on to use as a teacher and also encourage my students to use to develop their own learning and presentation skills.  However Text2MindMap is the second home run of the day.

Text 2 Mind map is a web application that converts texts to a mind maps. Text 2 Mind Map takes a structured list of words or sentences, interprets it, and draws a mind map of them.

I am not sure their description really does it justice. What Text2MindMap actually does is give simple word lists a visual hierarchy or organisation, albeit one that you predetermine. It would be very good for ranking and evaluating factors that impact upon a topic, in the example provided, the factors that influence a training programme (it was late and I didnt really think about ICT applications. The look and feel of the site reminds me visuwords and both sites certainly bring words to life.
