I think this mind map would be a great deal of help for a person that is a visual learner. By putting pictures in the mind map gives you a different way to remember what you've learned other than just re-reading notes or chapters.

For me mind mapping is a near impossible concept to grasp despite using it several times. This website laid out what I needed to do to make my mind map better as well as why it made it better. Who knew colors would actually stimulate your creativity; they aren't just for looks.

I really like mind mapping this helps me build the main idea of a story and the important events of the story. I have been using this technique since middle school, but we used to call it a web back then. You start from the middle and work your way out of the web. This has helped me a lot to better understand the important events in a book. I suggest people used this mind mapping to get to an important answer or information. I always try to use one to three words so that I know which main point is that I have to remember and when I have to recall it is easier for me to remember. Mind mapping is a great way to remember information and help you recall the information.

I found this website to give me great advice on how to mind map. It includes a colored easy to follow diagram at the beginning and then goes through each step. The seven steps being (1) Start in the center of a blank page, (2) use an image or a picture for your central idea, (3) Use colors throughout, (4) Connect main branches to the central image, (5) Make your lines curved, (6) Use one key word per line, and (7) use images throughout. Under each step it states tips for that step. It includes examples for someone to look at to completely understand what mind mapping is and how it should look. I find mind mapping very helpful when trying to understand something that I am not very familiar with. Mind mapping provides a great study tool.

The seven steps were very interesting, different, and easy to apply. I had never even begun to think of turning a paper sideways to understand it better. Had no clue that colors stimulate the mind. I have known that images will help me remember important things. What I didn't understand was using curved lines! Weird but I will give it a try for the next chapter.

This website outlines the 7 steps one would need to Mind Map. Often it is difficult to organize notes taken during a lecture but by using the Mind Map method, one would start in the middle of the page with their main idea and work outward with different branches (each single word or image represents a single branch). When creating, the use of color also help the brain with memorizing the content.

I personally have never used this method of note taking before. It does make sense the brain would be able to memorize information easier but I also see it as information overload depending on the subject one is trying to take notes on and how many branches are created.

Mind maps or Outlining?
Marisol

I usually don't use mind maps when I take notes because I feel like it takes more time to put everything together and make it organized in a way that I will understand it later when I review. But looking at the seven steps, it makes it seem easier that I expected and I might have to try it out. I may not have given it a fair shot since outlining is my go-to.

I like the idea of adding color since it will make it pop and I can also add maybe a code so i know what information belongs in what color. Also, i like the idea of adding keywords instead of sentences because sometimes during a lecture that's all you have time for. If anything, it might be easier for me to write an outline and then do a mind map. I think that will work for me.

This resource is designed to help people easily and quickly make mind maps as they call it. It gives good outlines and even an example on how to create the maps.

I found this to be helpful because it displays it quickly, in depth, and has color coding and little pictures within the example. As well as listing why each step is done the way they have done it, such as why it is shaped the way it is, how to best make the map, and even a little depth into why the brain finds it appealing and thus works with it better.
