Looking for an Argument #edtech

Who remembers writing position papers in high school and college.  I do! I dreaded them.  Who among my readers still assigns them?  Well, if you do, tonight's post is for you (more specifically your students).  aMap allows you to create a graphic flow chart based on informal logic which includes your Position (I think), Propositions (Because), Arguments (As) and Evidence (Supported By).  You can have multiple "tails" coming off of your position.  I wish I had something like aMap back when I was in school. Additionally, they have a service allowing you to create printed copies of your arguments for a fee. aMap is a pretty nice tool overall.
