Today I stumbled upon a fabulous find! It’s called Cacoo and it is pretty amazing. Cacoo is a free online collaboration service for diagrams, mind maps, and graphic organizers. Start by creating a free account. I linked mine to my Google Account, which made the log-in process even easier. Once you have an account, work through the “Get Started” tab to get a feel for what they offer. You can see in the screen shot below, full editing capacity in terms of font, color and text, a freehand tool, a chat feature, and even the ability to draw your own diagram using shapes and lines if the tons of templates aren’t just right. Share the diagram and work in real-time collaboration with others much like you would in a Googledoc. When finished the diagram can be exported into many different forms, including a share-able link. It even has the ability to create shared folders and be able to work on multiple documents with multiple people. Imagine the possibilities with your students working on a project, brainstorming, or organizing together. This is another great opportunity to take your technology integration from substitution to modification, or even redefinition depending on how you share the information.
