Hello everyone. We wanted to remind you all that our contest ends on June 27, so don’t miss out! Please send your most creative maps to firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember to design your map in either MindMaple Lite or MindMaple Pro. The winner will receive a $250 gift card to Amazon.com.
For those of you that are not familiar with mind mapping and how to get started, I assure you it’s not a daunting task. Mind Tools has a helpful article, “Mind Maps, A Powerful Approach to Note-Taking,” that discusses mind mapping and its many benefits. “Mind Mapping is a useful technique that helps you learn more effectively, improves the way that you record information, and supports and enhances creative problem solving.”
Further, Mind Tools explain that “by using Mind Maps, you can quickly identify and understand the structure of a subject. You can see the way that pieces of information fit together, as well as recording the raw facts contained in normal notes. To learn more about mind mapping, its uses, and how to begin to create your maps, check out this article. There is even a video for more clarification. Good luck!
