Presentation Transcript

  1. UNIT 4 MIND MAPPING TECHNIQUES • At the end of this session, you will: • UNDERSTAND THE THINKING PATTERN OF THE HUMAN BRAIN • USE RADIANT THINKING AND MIND MAPPING TO ENHANCE THINKING AND NOTE MAKING • ENHANCE MEMORY

  2. MIND MAPPING ACTIVITY I Think about nature in terms of the architecture of the following: - a flower - a leaf - lightning - a tree Is there a similar pattern you can observe? ACTIVITY 2 Close your eyes and think about your best friend. What do you find?

  3. MIND MAPPING • ACTIVITY 3 • Write on a piece of paper in LINEAR form 16 words • or ideas associated with the word COLLEGE in the • following format: • COLLEGE • ------------------- 9) ------------------- • ------------------- • ---------------------- • --------------------- • ---------------------- • ------------------------- • ------------------------ • -----------------------

  4. RADIANT / DIVERGENT THINKING NOTICE WHEN WE USED THE SPOKES OR BRANCHES RADIATING FROM THE WORD COLLEGE, MORE IDEAS AND CONCEPTS EMERGES IN CONTRAST TO THE CONVENTIONAL LINEAR FORMAT YOUR THINKING BEGAN TO GROW AND EXPAND RATHER THAN BEING CONFINE.

  5. MAKING MIND MAPS STEP 1 USE AN A4 BLANK SHEET OR A3 IF AVAIABLE DRAW THE MIND MAP HORIZONTALLY RATHER THAN VERTICALLY. THIS ENABLES MORE SPACE TO WORK WITH STEP 2 START AT THE CENTRE OF THE PAGE AND RADIATE OUT. DRAW AN IMAGE OR SYMBOL IN THE CENTRE TO REPRESENT THE THEME OR TOPIC

  6. MIND MAPPING STEP 3 ATTACH MAIN THEMES TO THE CENTRAL IMAGE THE BRAIN WORKS BY ASSOCIATION. PRINT WORDS IN LARGE CAPITAL LETTERS ON TOP OF THICK LINES HAVING THE SAME LENGTH AS THE WORDS THE LARGE CAPITAL LETTERS AND THICK LINES EMPHASISE THE HIERARCHY AND SIGNIFICANCE OF IDEAS BY MAKING THEM MORE VISIBLE AND THUS MORE MEMORABLE

  7. MIND MAPPING STEP 4 USE A HAYFORK OR FISHBONE TECHNIQUE TO CONNECT SUBSIDIARY LINES TO MAIN LINES THIS REFLECT THE LOGIC AND ASSOCIATIVE NATURE OF THE BRAIN PSYCHOLOGISTS HAVE LONG ESTABLISHED THAT PEOPLE LEARN BY ASSOCIATING NEW KNOWLEDGE TO EXISTING KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE

  8. MIND MAPPING STEP 5 PRINT KEY WORDS ON THE CONNECTING LINES OR BRANCHES EACH KEY WORD ON A LINE/ BRANCH GIVES THE BRAIN MORE FREEDOM TO BRANCH OUT IN A CONNECTIVE FASHION FROM THAT WORD

  9. MIND MAPPING STEP 6 USE COLOUR THROUGHOUT COLOUR FURTHER ENHANCES THE MIND MAPS MAKING IT MORE INTERESTING, UNIQUE AND OUTSTANDING AND IMPROVING RETENTION AND RECALL

  10. MIND MAPPING STEP 7 USE IMAGES, SYMBOLS AND CODES PERSONALISE THE CONTENTS TO REPRESENT MAIN THEMES. IMAGES IMPROVE PROBLEM SOLVING AND COMMUNICATION AND OVER TIME WILL IMPROVE A PERSON’S PERCEPTUAL SKILLS.

  11. MIND MAPPING STEP 8 SEGMENT THEMAIN THEMES BY DRAWING BOUNDARY LINES AROUND THEM THIS GIVES THE MIND MAPS ITS UNIQUE BRAIN PATTERNED SHAPE. MIND MAPS CHUNK INFORMATION INTO MEANINGFUL AND ORGANISED GROUPS BY A PROCESS OF SEGMENTATION AND AID RETENTION AND RECALL OF INFORMATION

  12. ADVANTAGES OF MIND MAPPING FLEXIBLE RECALL ASSOCIATIONS MULTI SENSORY ESSENCE WORTWHILE VISUAL AID ORGANISED RECONNAISANCE KNOWLEDGE OF LEFT-RIGHT BRAIN
