Creating Coggles

Coggle is an online Mind Mapping program. 

  • Students begin with a central topic and organize the information from the textbook (green branches) in a way that they can understand better. 
  • Students then add Concept Branches (purple branches) that fit the information.
  • Students add links to outside information (blue branches) that they feel needs further explanation.
  • Students will then answer and create Higher Order Thinking Questions (red branches) that they are given and develop their own as well.​

 How a Coggle Works

Green Branches: Notes

Purple Branches: Concepts

Blue Branches: Outside Links

Red Branches: Student & Higher Order Thinking Questions
