Concept mapping or mind mapping is a visual representation of data in such a way that highlights connections and relationships between elements. Concept maps can be used by students to visualize their thoughts, generate ideas in a brainstorming session, and illustrate concepts. They are also useful for organizing ideas to facilitate recall and enhance comprehension. Needless to mention that concept map apps are also great for taking visual notes and capturing thoughts on the go.
