App Brings Visual Thinking and Learning to iPad

PORTLAND, Ore. – May 22, 2012 – Inspiration Software today announced an end-of-school-year sale on Inspiration® Maps™, the app that brings visual thinking and learning to iPad®. Previously priced at $14.99, the app is now available for $6.99 - but only for a limited time.

Created by Inspiration® Software, Inc., the leader in visual thinking and learning, Inspiration Maps allows all types of learners to capture their ideas, work smarter and build knowledge. Students take an active role in learning when they use Inspiration Maps. Rather than passively absorb information or play games, they build maps and outlines that stimulate creativity and aid comprehension. In addition, the proven visual learning methodologies in Inspiration Maps help develop the critical-thinking, cross-curricular literacy and writing skills that are delineated in the Common Core State Standards.

Educators who take advantage of this limited time offer will join their colleagues around the country like Jared Bloom, Ph.D.,supervisor of assessment and technology at South Huntington Union Free School District in Huntington Station, N.Y., who said Inspiration Software has “captured the heart of the software in a great full-featured app.” He sees Inspiration Maps as a critical tool in the lineup of apps being loaded on the iPads his district just purchased. Inspiration Maps is “a very effective mapping, critical-thinking and outlining tool and an incredible value.”

Bloom said teachers and students alike will love working with the touch-pad interface, easily changing between various elements. He is particularly impressed with the capability that allows users to add photos to an outline with just the tap of a finger. “With a computer, you would have to get the camera, download the photo and import it – that’s a lot of steps,” he said. “Anyone can do this – and use it effectively and creatively.”

To purchase Inspiration Maps, go to http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/inspiration-maps/id510173686?ls=1&mt=8. Educators may purchase in volume through Apple’s Education Volume Purchase Program. A free preview of Inspiration Maps – Inspiration Maps Lite, is also available for download on the App Store. To learn more about Inspiration Maps, visit http://inspiration.com/ipad
