    7. 7. Why Mind Maps work• Your memory is naturally associative, not linear• Any idea has thousands of links in your mind• Mind maps allow associations and links to be recorded and reinforced• The mind remembers key words and images, not sentences• Because mind maps are more visual and depict associations between key words, they are much easier to recall than linear notes Source: http://www.peterrussell.com/MindMaps/Advantages.php
    8. 8. Creativity• Adults: on average 3 to 6 alternatives• Children: often 60 or more alternatives• Numbed by education, norms & values, inhibiting curiosity, coloring within the lines

    27. 27. Mind maps according Buzan• Take a large piece of paper (A2 – A3)• Place the paper in ‘landscape’• Draw a central image in the middle of your mind map• Do not box in your image
    28. 28. Source: http://www.mind-mapping.co.uk
    29. 29. Mind maps according Buzan• Add branches to your central image• These branches represent main themes to your cental image• Each branch has its own color. Use at least three colors.• The lines are thick, curved and organic, like the branch of tree to the trunk• Each branch has a single (key) word of image
    30. 30. Source: http://www.mind-mapping.co.uk
    31. 31. Mind maps according Buzan• Add a second level of branches• These branches are associations triggered by the main branches• The lines are thinner, but still curved• The branches have single words, but may be lowercase• The size and style of the letters provide extra data about the importance and meaning
