Mind Mapping

To enhance learning and recall, to boost creativity, to plan effectively and to be a note-taker extraordinaire!

Mind mapping is a skill that, once mastered, can be applied to all subjects and can be used to show high order thinking skills, like analysis and synthesis.

Mind maps are also a superb way to boost imagination and creativity.

Mind Mapping

One of THE most powerful study tools one can ever learn!

Mind mapping is used in academia and in business worldwide. It is, without a doubt, one of the most powerful techniques one can ever learn!

Designed by Tony Buzan over 40 years ago, mind mapping quite simply helps students to reach their full mental potential.

Mind maps engage all of our cortical skills in a powerful and unique way to: enhance learning and recall, boost creativity, develop advanced note-taking skills, plan, analyse, organise, present and communicate. In short, mind-mapping improves learning, gives clarity of thought and can be applied to every subject.

Mind maps are also a superb way to boost imagination and show high order thinking skills.

"Jay’s enthusiasm, knowledge of the strategies, techniques and tips was excellent and was exactly what we were looking for at this time in Year 11 for our students and parents. It’s testament to Jay and the workshop as to how many pupils had told their parents about how much they enjoyed it and how useful they found it that some students were calling and texting their parents during the school day to say ‘Mum/Dad you need to come to the Parent’s workshop this evening!’ The strategies were relevant, easy to use, engaging and delivered in a way which will facilitate the students use of them as well. It was great to be given some resources by Jay in order to support the pupils through the revision process as the year goes on as well. I will look to rebook this event for next years, Year 11 at a similar time."
