Mindmapping workshop for parents ~ success!

Filed under: Design Technology — Editor @ 8:26 pm

Recently I ran a workshop for the parents of our students on how mind-mapping works and how we are using this in the education of their children.

It was a great event and the parents who attended really got into the ideas and concepts.

‘Your passion and expertise were infectious! We learnt a great deal and xxx immediately downloaded the free week of the Buzan package.  Exclamations of : ‘wow’, and: ‘ this is great’, were to be heard. He has already started to map out revision…………..’

This is a comment from one of the parents who attended for which I say a massive ‘Thank you’.

Following the very successful Mindmapping workshop for parents Tim Fulford has had requests to run another one! MindMapping makes use of both sides of the brain and is said to increase the potential to solve problems, prepare essays, projects and much more. Tim Fulford is running an open workshop for any parent or friend of the school on 20th November at 17.30 in Room G. In this workshop he will demonstrate some new software which has just been launched. To express and interest please email Tim at fulfordt@boothamschool.com

Mindmapping workshop success

On Thursday evening a group of parents and staff sat down together for a new experience, a workshop in how enhance the use of their brains, memory and thinking through the use of mindmapping techniques.

Everyone was able to have a go at new software based techniques and a paper-based activity.

The workshop started with a brief introduction and theory followed by a creative exercise where the group had to think of as many alternative uses for a wire coat hanger! The total in a few minutes was over 30!

The room soon became a hive of activity as everyone settled down to explore how the software worked and how it could be used in everyday and professional situations.

One of the class  reported ‘The workshop was great fun, we learnt a lot and amazed ourselves at how powerful this technique is, excellent!’
