Mind Mapping (tool)

What is it?
A mind map is a creative and visual tool used to outline information during a note-making process. It is starting from a central subject and then, like a tree, there are branches connected by lines.
Why is it useful in VET?
It is a perfect way to take notes and unleash creativity. The combination of words and images is six times better for remembering information than words alone.
Place an image or topic in the centre using at least 3 colours. 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 alone and sitting on its own line. Connect the lines starting from the central image. The central lines are thicker, organic and flowing, becoming thinner as they radiate out from the centre.
Make the lines the same length as the word/image. Use colours—your own code—throughout the Mind Map. 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.
