Mind Mapping - Introduction

The road to mind mapping
Rochell Ortiz, College Freshman

I watched the video on mind mapping, hosted by Tony Buczan. It kept my interest. I think it is a great tool for all ages. It shows a helpful guide line on howwe store our information. I will use this road & mind mapping to my advantage, to help me learn how to keep my information stored in my mind. I think it will also help me concentrate on my studies.

Thank you! Rochell Ortiz

This video was on a new way of taking notes and of how to brainstorm. It is a system that reflects the processes of the brain. It plays to all the function of the brain and imitates them, thus giving a better memory experience.

When you first hear the term "mind-mapping" it might conjure up images of hypnosis or fortune telling. But in truth the term refers to a different way to organize a large body of information so that it connects the main topic, by branches, to its many subtopics. I have used concept mapping before, but I like the way that Tony Buzan presents "mind mapping" as a fluid and organic method that helps to connect the different parts of the brain which helps to increase the brains retention of the information. I plan on trying the "mind mapping" method in my own studies. I am hopeful it will be another helpful study tool for me.

I think this is an effective method to memorize important information. Using one subject and than branching out with several supporting ideas helps a person visualize material. This also assists with associating the subject, ideas with many important details. I like the curved lines, colors and shapes that are used on his maps. Offering a more interesting method of learning, while building an association to the topic.

Words and Imagines

I found it interesting to use mind mapping. When there is actually pathways to major things in your life it allows to pull up those memories. The ease of one word recollection to pull up information and then open other parts of your brain where memory is stored. Key words and Images were an wonderful way to grow and store more in your brain. I am working to organize my brain with mind mapping.

Awesome video!

I love the way he explains how the brain interprets every piece of a mind map. He explains why it should be the way it is and how it helps our brain learn the information. I love the amount of detail that goes into this way of doing it. I think it is really interesting how he compares the map and its different pieces with the way our brain thinks and makes associations. Great video!
