A selection of some of the mind maps I’ve been drawing as a study technique. There are several ways in which I find mind maps beneficial. They help me to organise information in a visual way whilst summarising what I’ve read, they help me to organise my own thoughts on a topic, and the time I spend shading or colouring allows me to process what I’ve written while my brain is in a relaxed state.
Read my Learning to Learn post for more about my experiences of studying and teaching with mind maps.
