Did you ever wonder where the idea for mindmaps came from?? Well, think no further because today you’re going to find out. If you read the last post I wrote you may remember I was getting carried away with the mind map thing, so it will come as no surprise that I have not moved on. Since our students will probably find mind maps to be just as useful as we do, it seems mean to deprive them. So I propose to give them a lesson on the subject with some pretty pictures and some video.
Back by popular demand, here is the mind map gallery. The visuals are colourful, the subject matter varied. Plenty to discuss.
Either of these videos should be sufficient to stimulate classroom discussion. I provide a work sheet for each which you can access by clicking on the links. The first is by far the more difficult, but it will appeal to high-powered folks with big IQs. The second is much more accessible for intermediate students, especially as the video has visual elements to aid comprehension.
