  2. 2. Mind maps were developed in the late 60s by Tony Buzan as a way of helping students make notes that used only key words and images. They are much quicker to make, and because of their visual quality much easier to remember and review . The non-linear nature of mind maps makes it easy to link and cross-reference different elements of the map. –Peter Russell Mind Mapping is an alternative method of note taking , one which uses an artistic ( stream of consciousness ) approach. A mind map is a diagram used to represent words , ideas , tasks or other items linked to and arranged radially around a central key word or idea. It is used to generate , visualize , structure and classify ideas, and as an aid in study , organization , problem solving , decision making , and writing. - WikiPedia
