Assistive technology (AT) is any device, software, or equipment that is used to maintain or improve the functional capabilities of a person with a disability, including a learning difference. Technologies include hardware, or physical technologies that are kept on-site at our AT Studio, and software, or technology available via a computer that can potentially be used from home. To learn more about why and how LDS uses AT, head to our AT webpage.
MindMeister is a web-based platform that allows for mind mapping—a visual representation of thoughts and ideas. This software lets you make Mind Map bubbles containing text and images, arrange them, and connect them with lines, to help organize and capture ideas a student may have. Mind Maps can be used to organize thoughts, make To Do lists, brainstorm, schedule, and so much more. And because it is an online platform, Mind Maps can be used on any device and used collaboratively on projects.
Our RISE Assistive Technology Studio is supported by our thoughtful and generous LDS technology sponsors, including MindMeister. Like all our assistive software tools, LDS offers MindMeister to our students and their families for use in lessons, in school, and at home. To claim your free copy of MindMeister, please email our AT Manager at AT@ldsociety.ca. You can also request an LDS assistive software virtual tour to get an in-depth introduction to our assistive software suite.
We also offer MindMeister in our East Vancouver AT Studio, a space dedicated to the collaborative use of leading-edge AT to help our students with learning differences. To learn more about how your child can benefit, email our AT Manager at AT@ldsociety.ca.
