Mind mapping helps children organize their thoughts and greatly simplify what they learn. There are several ways to approach this way of accelerated education. We will be discussing the most popular version taught by Tony Buzan, who, arguably, originated mind mapping.
Mind mapping allows anyone of nearly any age to record an idea, help brainstorm and problem solve, even take notes during class. It's very visual, organic, colorful and creative. And it's a fantastic way to keep from getting bored during class because students are engaging the creative (right) and logical (left) parts of their brain while making one. This action keeps children more alert and will help them learn more and easily retain a lot more information in a short amount of time.
