Using Mind Maps
This brief booklet is simply to show how Mind Manager may be used to save time in the classroom – and to encourage discussion. The early sections deal with how to draw a Mind Map and the advantages/disadvantages (yes, there are some) of Mind Map use. Later sections deal with how teachers can sue Mind Maps in the classroom.
Throughout this manual the software used is Mind Manager, produced by MindJet. Their website is: http://www.mindjet.com/uk/
Other software is available from other sellers but Mind Manager, in the opinion of the author, is the most useful for Education. An independent review of Mind Manager is included in the Appendix of this manual. This manual is also available on CD. This means that the various links shown can be accessed leading you to the original website. That is one of the main reasons for including extracts. In the Case Study section the full Case Studies may be downloaded by clicking the links.
