What is a “MIND MAP ?” A mind map is often created around a single word or text, placed in the center, to which associated ideas, words and concepts are added.
Mind map is a diagram used to represent : words, ideas tasks, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea.
DEFINITION OF MIND MAPPING!! Mind maps are, by definition, “A graphical method of taking notes.” Their visual basis helps one to distinguish words or ideas, often with colors and symbols.
SIGNIFICANCE OF MIND MAPPING Mind maps are used to : generate, generate visualize visualize, structure,structure classify classify ideas,
an aid to studyingstudying organizing information,organizing solving problems,solving problems making decisions, and writing making decisions
APPLICATIONS OF MIND MAPPING Mind maps have many applications in personal, family, educational, educational business situations, business
note taking brainstorming stages summarizing to sort out a complicated idea.
outline/framework design individual expression of creativity condensing material into a concise and memorable format team building creating activity enhancing work morale
FORMATS OF MIND MAPPING Cognitive maps (also known as mental maps, mind maps, cognitive models, or mental models) are a type of mental processing composed of a series of psychological transformations by which an individual can acquire, code, store, recall, andmind mapsmental modelsmental processing decode information.
Cognitive maps have been studied in various fields, such as: psychology, education, archaeology, planning, geography, architecture,.
. Tree Structure It is named a "tree structure" because the classic representation resembles a tree, even though the chart is generally upside down compared to an actual tree, with the "root" at the top and the "leaves" at the bottom.representationtree
Mind maps can be drawn by hand, either as "rough notes“ during a lecture meeting seminar
Mind Mapping is considered as the best technique that encourages us to use association and imagination. Mind Mapping Mind Mapping was invented by Tony Buzan in 1960s,. According to Tony Buzan it is a thinking tool - a creative and effective means of thinking that literally maps out your brain..
Mind Maps are an ideal tool to use as a memory improvement tool, not only that it is extremely simple but it can have an immediate impact on memory, creativity and your ability to concentrate
Tony Buzan’s guideline: In his books on Mind Maps Tony Buzan suggests using the following guidelines for creating Mind Maps:Tony Buzan Start in the center with an image of the topic, using at least 3 colors. Use images, symbols, codes, and dimensions throughout your Mind Map..
Select key words and print using upper or lower case letters. Each word/image is best alone and sitting on its own line. The lines should be connected, starting from the central image. The central lines are thicker, organic and thinner as they radiate out from the centre
Make the lines the same length as the word/image they support. Use multiple colors throughout the Mind Map, for visual stimulation and also to encode or group. Develop your own personal style of Mind Mapping.
Use emphasis and show associations in your Mind Map. Keep the Mind Map clear by using radial hierarchy, numerical order or outlines to embrace your branches.
A long list of boring information can be turned into colorful, memorable, highly organized diagrams that reflect the brains natural way of thinking and encourages synergetic thinking.
General /quick guideline A quick guide - how to make a Mind Map: 1. Gather all the information you need - your research, an array of colored pens and a large blank piece of paper. 2. Draw a simple image or symbol to represent your central idea in the centre of the page. 3. Think of the main points or topics of your Mind Map, radiate your key topics of the central image as branches adding a key word that represents that topic..
4. Now explore your main branches with sub-branches / thoughts. Add single words to each sub-branch. Let your ideas flow freely, adding a new branch for each thought. 5. Use your colored pens and add images to make your map vibrant and exciting. 6. Alternatively, you could produce your Mind Map using the new and exciting Mind Mapping software that has recently become available,
CONCLUSION Once you have created your Mind Map you will notice that instead of having pages and pages of boring linear notes you have a single page that contains all the key points that you need to remember. You will instantly see the connections and links between different ideas and thoughts and can help you quickly gain insight into the big picture as it represented on the piece of paper in front of you.created your Mind Map
