Famous films (2). Mind mapping

As I promised in a previous post, here you have some of my students' works:

Mindmapping is really useful in teaching and learning. It reflects the way the brain works and can help students organize their ideas.
Mind maps were developed by Tony Buzan who "wanted to know how to use the brain most effectively in order to cope with all the learning we have to do".

They are a powerful tool for:

-taking notes
-doing a project
-writing an essay
-new vocabulary
-summarizing information
-giving a presentation
-explaining grammar
And many more..

How to do it?

Write the main idea or topic in the middle of the page, start a main branch on a new line radiating out from the key word and add some other ideas on smaller lines coming off the main branches.
It is a good idea to use lines, colours, arrows, pictures or some other way of showing connections between the ideas generated on your mind map; by personalising it with your own symbols and designs it will be easier for you to understand and remember things.

    Hi Ana,

    I like this tool. Thanks for sharing it.It can be very useful for our Bachillerato students.



  2. Mayte, I agree with you.
    I find it very useful to prepare our students for "Selectividad".It's so difficult for them to write compositions! By using mind maps they can organize their ideas in a better way.
    Thank you for your visit and your comment.
