A map of idea threads created by a Grade 5/6 classroom studying the human body. Each colored stripe in the upper map represents an idea thread extending from the first till the last note contributed addressing its focal problem/topic (e.g. how allergies work). Each square represents a note; a blue line between two notes represents a build-on link; a green dotted line shows notes (in red) that are shared between different threads discussing interrelated issues. The user can hover the mouse over a note to see a preview of its contents and open an idea thread by clicking its title (left). The example analyses (bottom) show the distribution of notes in the different idea threads and conceptual connections between the threads based on the frequency of cross-thread shared/common notes.
