Mind Mapping and Learning (part 1 of 2)

Students usually take down notes of their teacher’s lectures. If you’re one of these students, how do you jot down the notes? Are you simply writing down only the most important things or are you using a different method? Well, perhaps you learn more about mind mapping.

Mind mapping and learning are related because if you want to learn easily and fast, you can utilize the mind maps to your advantage. How are you going to do this and what are mind maps?

College students need to take down a lot of notes so that they can prepare for their exams. Not only do they need to focus on the everyday discussions inside their class but they also need to read their textbooks. Oftentimes, students find it very hard to learn all the needed information. Text information is quite hard to learn especially for those who don’t do well in class. One way to help these students is through mind maps.

Each individual is unique and so they also learn in different ways. One way of learning may work for an individual but it may not work for another. Jotting down notes can be considered a passive process. The brain is not able to interact with the pieces of information that you’re writing down. If you want to remember everything that you’ve written down, your brain should be more involved.

Visual learning is quite popular these days. Those who are inclined to visual learning can learn better if they make use of cartoons, drawings, and graphs. For those individuals who are not very good in visualizations but have auditory skills can learn much better through tape-recordings. So you see, people tend to learn differently depending on their skills.
