  2. 2. Agenda : What Why Mind Maps When How
  3. 3. Tony Buzan Your brain is like a sleeping giant Tony Buzan is the world-renowned inventor of Mind Mapping and expert on the brain, memory, speed reading, creativity and innovation. http://www.thinkbuzan.com 12/21/2013 3
  4. 4. What is Mind Map   A Mind Map is a visual form of note-making that can be done either individually or as part of a group. A mind map is a diagram used to represent themes of understanding linked a central key word or idea
  5. 5. What is Mind Map  A Mind Map is a powerful graphic technique which provides a universal key to unlock the potential of the brain  The Mind Map can be applied to every aspect of life where improved learning and clearer thinking will enhance your productivity
  6. 6. WHY YOU SHOULD REVISE Your short term memory can only hold 7 bits of information at a timerevision helps reinforce your learning to help you prepare for your exams.  Within 30 days, we only remember 20% of the information learnt  Without revision you will have wasted 2 years of your entire life! 
  7. 7. The need for Mind Mapping  Unless you train your memory it is likely to get worse over time, not better.  Retention is the art of storing new information or skills.  Recall is the art of retrieving it when you need it.
  8. 8. Mind Map : Recall Strategy Mind Mapping trains your mind for more efficient retention and recall. Mind maps are tools which help you think and learn.
  9. 9. Understanding Vs. Remembering  Understanding something is not sufficient to remember it.  Mental associations are also necessary for recall.  Mind Mapping reinforces understanding and gives a visual framework for organizing ideas and making associations.
  10. 10. Compact notes improve recall o Learning without note taking forces you to go back and review from scratch. o Taking extensive notes provides too much information and too few memory cues. o Mind Maps store everything you need on one page, and encode the information in memory-rich nuggets for easy recall. 12/21/2013 10
  11. 11. Benefits of Mind Maps • More friendly brain . • The brain is capable of processing hundreds of images a second. • The organisation reflects how the brain remembers, linking facts/memories • Easy to review • The process of creating a mind map deepens learning 12/21/2013 11
  12. 12. Mind Maps are useful for:  Brainstorming individually, and as a group.  Summarizing information, and note taking.  Consolidating information from different research sources.  Thinking through complex problems.  Presenting information in a format that shows the overall structure of your subject.  Studying and memorizing information. 12/21/2013 12
  13. 13. HOW TO MIND MAP 12/21/2013 13
  14. 14. How To Mind Map (1 of 4) 1. Take a blank piece of paper, A4 or larger ◦ Pre-drawn lines can restrict us! 2. 3. 4. Use the paper in landscape orientation . Start in the center Make a central image that represents the topic about which you are writing/thinking  Use at least three colours  Keep the height and width of the central image to about two inches  Allow the image to create its own shape 14
  15. 15. How To Mind Map (2 of 4) 5. The main themes (Basic Ordering Ideas) around the central image are like the chapter headings of a book ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ Print this word in CAPITALS or draw an image Place on a line of the same length connected to the central image The central lines are thick, curved and organic - like the trunk of a tree Usually about 3 – 7 themes 15
  16. 16. How To Mind Map (3 of 4) 6. Start to add a second level of thought which are linked to the main branch that triggered them ◦ ◦ 7. Connecting lines are thinner Words are still printed but may be in lower case Add third, fourth, … levels of data as thoughts come to you ◦ ◦ Use images as much as possible Jump around the map as different thoughts come to you 16
  17. 17. How To Mind Map (4 of 4) 8. Add emphasis to important points on the map ◦ 9. Outline whole branches of the map as you see fit ◦ ◦ 10. 11. Maybe put a box around a point Try using colours here The colours can be used to show connections between branches Make your maps a little more beautiful, artistic, colourful, or imaginative Be humorous and have some fun! 17
  18. 18. Key features of mind maps The process starts around a central idea or picture  Key themes are established through branches with sub branches  Key terminology is used  Single words or phrases  Themes are connected through colours  Images reinforce meaning  It allows you to freely associate and link ideas 
