Mind Mapping software for learning difficulties to help manage dyslexia in schools


Top educational software for dyslexia, MindGenius, has assisted St Andrews High School in Coatbridge greatly, by getting students with learning and behavioural difficulties involved in classes and educational activities.

MindGenius, on demonstration at the BETT 2010 show, is an interactive software tool with the purpose to capture and sort information easily. Working with the school, former Head Teacher Harry Hughes realised that using a visual medium would help students to get more involved and engaged in class. Pupils could then see their contribution by logging the feedback and their thoughts and concerns, resulting in class interest and participation.

Mr Hughes also used MindGenius as the platform for anger management classes, allowing pupils to discuss their feelings and explore coping strategies.

Believing that each classroom can benefit from using this method, Dustin Newport, Commercial Director at MindGenius said the following; “It allows students to see all the information in context, with words, pictures, links etc. They can see the value and relevance of their contributions and this helps them understand the subject more effectively. The software supports lots of different learning styles and helps every student feel like an equal.”

This subject has become a hot topic of late with Henry Winkler, formerly The Fonz in the US sitcom Happy Days, launching the My Way Campaign to help raise awareness of those with dyslexia and learning difficulties.

MindGenius will be on demonstration at the BETT 2010 show at the Olympia, London, from 13 – 16 January, via stand F119.
