This site was interesting as well as informational on the concept of mind mapping. The video was very helpful on having a clear understanding on how to create your own and showed some great examples! It also contained a ton of other tools to help students who grow tired of writing page after page of notes!

A Mind Mapping Method

Mental mapping is a study technique that allows you to break down large chunks of information, and take notes in a much more efficient fashion. Using this method can result in a much more productive studying, and can also make reviewing your notes a much easier process. This article, and its accompanying video, offer well made explanations of this technique, such as how it works, and instructions on how to use this method.

How it helped

The site helped explain in different ways on how you can create a web and put your information down on the web, using titles and important details. to brainstorm your ideas and put them in order. it is easier to make a web and not a list of information. Mind mapping helps with big chunks of information,I tend to use too much information, but tend to try and make the information smaller when writing it down.

The website explains how to do mind maps and why they are important. In another class we had to take notes in this format and I was confused on what or how to do it. I wish I had found this website sooner. I find it interesting and informative. Very easy to read and navigate. Also has a video available to watch on maps.

Visual Organization Some Review

This website featured interesting and helpful advice in regards to a different approach to note taking. A technique called mind mapping is explained, where large amounts of information can be broken down into more simple and easier to understand information.

The material was easy to understand and the author detailed the steps to take in order to use this approach. For example, finding a main focus and then elaborating the details in an organized physical map. I will be trying this technique and enjoy discovering new ways to better my notes and memory. Great article!

I enjoyed reading through all the different links on this site, but the one that caught my attention was the link on Mind- Map- A powerful Approach to note taking. I found this link to be helpful, and I enjoyed watching the video. I found the video to be helpful and full of informative information. The video explained how the mind map can be an extremely effective method of taking notes, Away to show facts, and shows a structure of a subject and how its relative importance of individual parts are used and implemented in a mind map. Mind maps are useful and effective for taking large bits of information known as chunks of information, and consolidating the information. Mind maps help for problem solving, thinking through complex problems, studying and memorization and summarizing information. For me, I found this site educational and I look forward to trying mind mapping as a form of note taking in the future. Before I was not a fan of mind mapping but I now can see why this would be a useful tool to use when taking notes.
