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.
