How Concept Maps Can Revolutionize Learning for Dyslexic Students: A Comprehensive Guide by Algor Education
Concept maps are very useful for summarizing long texts, learning their main concepts, memorizing them, and presenting them orally. Many students, especially those with dyslexia, use them to study more autonomously and perform tasks more effectively.
Maps are also a tool for inclusive teaching in schools. As they are suitable for the needs of most students, more and more teachers use them in class as support for the lesson.

Algor education's multimedia mind maps for school subjects
On the Algor Education website you can find a rich gallery of summaries and mind maps for school divided by school subjects and by size (small, medium, large). These maps can be navigated online, customized with our web app and exported in different ways.
For each school topic you can find a brief textual summary divided into paragraphs and the corresponding concept map, consisting of textual nodes, arrows and relationships. Most of the maps for school are multimedia, enriched with images, hyper-textual links and videos to make studying even more stimulating and interactive.
Discover how to use algor education's concept maps to enhance your learning experience
The first thing to do to use Algor Education's concept maps is to visit the maps for school section of the website. Here you can search for the topic you are interested in directly through the search bar (by typing a keyword that interests you) or browse the different subjects:
Each summary with a map is represented by a card (a kind of figurine) with an image, the subject with its distinctive color (for example, blue for "Literature"), the title and subtitle (for example, "Gabriele d'Annunzio" and "Works and Thoughts").
Once you have chosen your favorite topic (by clicking on the appropriate figurine), you can read the summary or open the map from any device (smartphone, tablet, PC), by clicking on the orange button you see in the image below.
