Mind Mapping Overview

A mind map is a diagram used to visually organize information. A mind map is often created around a single concept, drawn as an image in the center of a blank landscape page, to which associated representations of ideas such as images, words and parts of words are added. Major ideas are connected directly to the central concept, and other ideas branch out from those.

  • Concept Maps: diagrams that show relationships, links or associations between concepts.
  • Concept Mapping: a technique to show concepts and their relationships with each other through labeled arrows.
  • Mind Maps: The organization of mind maps reflects how the mind processing thinking as ideas arise
  • Mind Mapping: A process that brainstorms ideas, words, tasks or other elements and arranges them in groups around a central notion
  • Group Concept Maps: constructed through active collaboration among group members. More content and cross-links result due to contribution by different learning styles that bring differnt knowledge to the task.
