Mind Maps for Education

I am currently working on a project to show how Mind Mapping and Mind Maps can be used in Education right from reception through to Sixth Form.

These first Mind Maps are spelling sheets which are being used by Year 5 pupils. They work on the founding principle of Mind Mapping: Image and Association as developed by Tony Buzan.  Each Mind Map is produced using iMindMap software and can be used in the very useful ‘presentation mode’ displaying one branch and image at a time to enable the pupils to record the words themselves rather than working from a prepared linear list.

Each week the pupils were given a list of 20 spellings to learn for a test the following week. I have converted the list into a Mind Map for some of the pupils and I will be monitoring the performance in the weekly tests.
