ADCET Webinar: How Ideamapper helps students of varying abilities plan, write and reference
Ideamapper was originally created as a solution for students with specific Learning Disabilities who struggled to write large amounts of text such as essays and reports. It was designed by PHDs and a Dyslexia expert with an MBE for services to Dyslexia and other hidden disabilities. Ideamapper uses mind mapping to help students manage information in a bitesize format, helping unlock ideas otherwise lost in a jumble of information. A vast array of templates and writing frames are included to help students get started with their essays and to more effectively manage the structure of their writing tasks.
Ideamapper will soon be fully AT compliant with accessibility standards and will be compatible with screenreaders (including JAWS) and Dragon.
