    2. 2. What is a Mind Map?<br />A pictorial representation of information and an alternative to linear notes. A mind map will contain a central concept (or the ‘topic’) in the centre with branches to related concepts, which in turn branch off to provide further detail.<br />

    6. 6. How to create a Mind Map…<br />Use blank paper, turned sideways (landscape).<br />Start in the centre with an image and/or word that represents the topic of the mind map.<br />Choose the keywords or images that will represent your main themes and put each one on a line that is connected to your topic in the centre.<br />Branch off from the main themes with points represented by keywords or images. Put each word or image on its own line.<br />Make the words and images larger in the centre and smaller further out. Make the lines the same length as the word or the image.<br />Keep the lines thicker in the centre, thinning out towards the edges of the mind map. This helps to show the order of your material.<br />
