Any good Online Collaboration and Mind Mapping sites for my 5th Graders to use?

I have found a few, but would like to get the opinions of the Classroom 2.0 educators.  I liked PBWorks and Mindmeister.  I also want sites in which I am the administrator and can create logins for my students.  Thanks for any input.

I like it!

Collaborize is fabulous. It allows students to vote and comment.  It will also generate graphs of students' votes. Super easy to use.  You can embed pictures and videos as well.  Here's a blogpost of how I first used it in my class.

I found Bubbl.us is a pretty good site.. basic but free. create some school related log ins for the kids and they can save their projects as needed.

 

Here is a list that, I believe I got from Tech and Learning :-)  I have also begun using Google Sites for quite a bit of my collaboration.  It's a great place for students to collaborate and create a project!
