“Using 3D technology takes what we learn in class to a whole new level. The children are more inspired to learn about the various parts of an animal cell and its functions when they simultaneously watch the construction and formation of a 3D animal cell. Incorporating this type of technology into their learning allows them to make connections from what they are learning in class to the greater world around them.� Chaidan Leshinski, 5th Grade Math, Joseph Sears School To place an order or for more information, call +44 (0) 1252 612 806 or email

Enabling Students to Visually Manage and Share Information Seeing is understanding—especially for the more than 65% of people who are visual learners. MindManager information visualization software is designed to help students do great work faster and more easily, by enabling them to visually manage and share information. MindManager works so well because it mirrors the way we naturally think, understand and learn. The “virtual whiteboard” format enables students to quickly capture ideas and data, fluidly organize and reorganize it right in front of their eyes—in any of more than 50 pre-built templates including maps, flowcharts and diagrams—and communicate it in an instantly clear and meaningful way. Students can use this intuitive, dynamic structured visualization process to simplify and improve some of their most essential activities, including: • Better Note Taking: With MindManager, students can write out their thoughts and see the connections across ideas and information. They can even add images, colours and icons to highlight key concepts and increase retention. • More Powerful Presentations: Visually structuring information not only makes it easier to understand, it also makes it easier to present. MindManager lets students show the big picture, and then drill down to the details to answer questions. • Effective Research: MindManager makes it easy to organize research into major topics and subtopics, using attachments and links that can be viewed in context, without having to jump from app to app or website to website. • Efficient Workflows: Thanks to the Microsoft integrations built into MindManager, students can seamlessly move content from the brainstorming and development phase of a project, to a finished document or presentation.
