I think FreeMind is best used in the context of rewriting handwritten notes so that their structure becomes more taut and elegant. For instance, one could ask the students to take a day to create their own mind-map of all the ideas learned in a given unit. The best mind maps could be selected as study guides, but all students would benefit from seeing how the information could be organized alternatively.
