  1. 1. Mind MappingSimple techniques for enhanced clarity & creativity
  2. 2. what makes humans different?
  3. 3. what makes humans different?
  4. 4. what makes humans different? Metacognition
  5. 5. what makes humans different? Metacognition Constructing abstractions
  6. 6. what makes humans different? Metacognition Constructing abstractions Info stored outside body
  7. 7. what makes humans different? Metacognition Constructing abstractions Info stored outside body Systems thinking
  8. 8. what makes humans different? Metacognition Constructing abstractions Info stored outside body Systems thinking Problem finding
  9. 9. what makes humans different? Metacognition Constructing abstractions Info stored outside body Systems thinking Problem finding Reciprocal learning

  13. 13. Brain structureand cognitive processare non-linear.
  14. 14. Brain structureand cognitive processare non-linear.
  15. 15. Brain structureand cognitive processare non-linear.
  16. 16. Brain structure and cognitive process are non-linear. More like a tree, or spider web, than atrain running down a track.
  17. 17. Brain structure and cognitive process are non-linear. More like a tree, or spider web, than atrain running down a track.
  18. 18. Structuring Thought
  19. 19. Structuring ThoughtLogical, linear, factualmight be the visiblebranches and leaves of atree.
  20. 20. Structuring ThoughtLogical, linear, factualmight be the visiblebranches and leaves of atree.Irrational, non-linear,intuitive connections arethe hidden roots.
  21. 21. Visual Tools: Definition
  22. 22. Visual Tools: DefinitionVisual tools are nonlinguistic symbol systems used by learners, teachers, and leaders,for graphically linking mental and emotional associations to create and communicate rich patterns of thinking.
  23. 23. VISUAL TOOLS
  24. 24. VISUAL TOOLSVisual tools, in the best cases, are generated from a blank page by students for transforming text based content information into ACTIVE KNOWLEDGE using a rich integration of visual, spatial, verbal, and numerical modalities. The goal is to create conceptually rich models full of meaningful connections.

  29. 29. Categories of visual tools BRAINSTORMING WEBS, for fostering creativity and open mindedness. GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS, enhance analytical content, and process specific learning. CONCEPTUAL MAPPING, for fostering cognitive development and critical thinking.
  30. 30. Mind Maps - The Rules
  31. 31. Mind Maps - The RulesUse plain paper, landscape orientation.
  32. 32. Mind Maps - The RulesUse plain paper, landscape orientation.Place a focusing IMAGE at the center.
  33. 33. Mind Maps - The RulesUse plain paper, landscape orientation.Place a focusing IMAGE at the center.Draw CURVING branches out from this center.
  34. 34. Mind Maps - The RulesUse plain paper, landscape orientation.Place a focusing IMAGE at the center.Draw CURVING branches out from this center.Add a KEYWORD along each branch.
  35. 35. Mind Maps - The RulesUse plain paper, landscape orientation.Place a focusing IMAGE at the center.Draw CURVING branches out from this center.Add a KEYWORD along each branch.Combine WORDS + IMAGES for associative power.
  36. 36. Mind Maps - The RulesUse plain paper, landscape orientation.Place a focusing IMAGE at the center.Draw CURVING branches out from this center.Add a KEYWORD along each branch.Combine WORDS + IMAGES for associative power.Use lots of COLOR.
  37. 37. Central focusing image
  38. 38. Central focusing image
  39. 39. Curving branches radiating from center
  40. 40. JUST ONE keyword printed along each branch
  41. 41. JUST ONE keyword printed along each branch
  42. 42. WORD + IMAGE
  43. 43. WORD + IMAGEUnexpected combinations lead us down NEW PATHS
  44. 44. WORD + IMAGEUnexpected combinations lead us down NEW PATHS
  45. 45. Keep it COLORFUL
  46. 46. COLOR ENGAGES THE CREATIVE PART OF OUR BRAINKeep it COLORFUL
  47. 47. List vsMind Map
  48. 48. List vsMind Map
  49. 49. List vs Mind Map Lists rein in the !ee-ranging movement of the brain.Lists directly oppose the workings of the mind, in that they generate anidea and then deliberately cut it off !om the ideas proceeding and fo%owing it.
  50. 50. The act of mapping was as profound as the invention of a number system. The combination or the reduction of reality and the construction of an analogical space is an attainment in abstract thinking of a very high order indeed, for it enablesone to discover structures that would remain unknown if not mapped. Robinson, 1982
  51. 51. Map making basic purposes
  52. 52. Map making basic purposes
  53. 53. Map making basic purposes to challenge one’s assumptions
  54. 54. Map making basic purposes to challenge one’s assumptions to recognize new patterns
  55. 55. Map making basic purposes to challenge one’s assumptions to recognize new patterns to make new connections
  56. 56. Map making basic purposes to challenge one’s assumptions to recognize new patterns to make new connections and to visualize the unknown (or the, as yet, unexperienced)
  57. 57. Simple Mind Maps
  58. 58. Simple Mind Maps
  59. 59. Simple Mind Maps Demo MindNode
  60. 60. Step 1 - Practice drawing a simple oval surrounded by ten curving branches.
  61. 61. Print the word HAPPINESS in the center.
  62. 62. HAPPINESS IS...write down 10 things that make you happy.
  63. 63. HAPPINESS IS...write down 10 things that make you happy.
  64. 64. Don’t think about it too much! HAPPINESS IS...write down 10 things that make you happy.
  65. 65. Don’t think about it too much! HAPPINESS IS...write down 10 things that make you happy.
  66. 66. CompareHappiness
  67. 67. Compare HappinessShare the simple mind map, and see how many words you have in common.
  68. 68. Radiant thinking
  69. 69. Radiant thinking
  70. 70. Radiant thinkingWe would probably assume mostpeople would fill in the “Happiness”mind map with mostly similarwords.
  71. 71. Radiant thinkingWe would probably assume mostpeople would fill in the “Happiness”mind map with mostly similarwords.Actually, that’s not the case.
  72. 72. Radiant thinkingWe would probably assume mostpeople would fill in the “Happiness”mind map with mostly similarwords.Actually, that’s not the case.In teams, discus what central wordwould produce the most similarresponse in the branch words,amongst a group of students in an artclass, at LMU, in 2010. Collaborateon the creation of a map.
  73. 73. Add sub-branches to each of the 10 primary branches.
  74. 74. Remember to only use ONE word per branch.Add sub-branches to each of the 10 primary branches.
  75. 75. Remember to only use ONE word per branch. Add sub-branches to each of the 10 primary branches.Using single words creates richer, and more open ended associations.
  76. 76. Remember to only use ONE word per branch. Add sub-branches to each of the 10 primary branches.Using single words creates richer, and more open ended associations.
  77. 77. Finding / Creating Symbols
  78. 78. Spend a few minutes copying some of the images from the handouts.Finding / Creating Symbols
  79. 79. Stage Two - Images
  80. 80. Stage Two - Images
  81. 81. Stage Two - ImagesNow construct a mind mapwithout words.
  82. 82. Stage Two - ImagesNow construct a mind mapwithout words.Only images.
  83. 83. Stage Two - ImagesNow construct a mind mapwithout words.Only images.The focusing central imageis of HOME.
  84. 84. Stage Two - ImagesNow construct a mind mapwithout words.Only images.The focusing central imageis of HOME.Not just any home, yourhome. The good feelings ofbeing home.

Take notes on a book or class that will allow you to actually remember the material. Instead of feeling stuck in a situation, expand the list of possibilities. Plan a dream vacation.
  90. 90. What can be accomplished with mindmaps? Clarify the upside and downside in order to make a difficult choice. Take notes on a book or class that will allow you to actually remember the material. Instead of feeling stuck in a situation, expand the list of possibilities. Plan a dream vacation. Find a job that’s meaningful.
  91. 91. What can be accomplished with mindmaps? Clarify the upside and downside in order to make a difficult choice. Take notes on a book or class that will allow you to actually remember the material. Instead of feeling stuck in a situation, expand the list of possibilities. Plan a dream vacation. Find a job that’s meaningful. Save the World!
  92. 92. for our next meeting...
  93. 93. for our next meeting... Create 3 mind maps
  94. 94. for our next meeting... Create 3 mind maps Experiment with different types: personal, study aid, planning, or simply branching out in you thinking.
  95. 95. for our next meeting... Create 3 mind maps Experiment with different types: personal, study aid, planning, or simply branching out in you thinking. Combine words and images.
