text2mindmap. It doesn't get much easier than this

What is it?  Text 2 Mind Map is a web application that converts texts to mind maps.  It takes a structured list of words or sentences, interprets it, and draws a mind map out of them. It is dead simple and can be stylized somewhat in terms of fonts and colours.  You can save your mindmap as a Jpeg also.

How can I use this in the classroom?  Next time you brainstorm, put away the white board marker, DOn't bother loading inspiration, you can just make a list and drop it straight in to text2mindmap.com.  Your kids will nut this out in seconds.  Check it out here.
