Examples in Mind Mapping Maker
Through our mind mapping maker, you can visualize
your thinking and quickly arrange and organize your work, all to benefit you as

Mind mapping (or
brainstorming diagram) involves
writing down a central idea and thinking up new and
related ideas which radiate out from the centre. By
focusing on key ideas written down in your own
words, and then looking for branches out and
connections between the ideas, you are mapping
knowledge in a manner which will help you understand
and remember new information.
Other Relative Links
- Find out relationships - Use lines, colors, arrows, branches or some
other way of showing connections between the
ideas generated on your mind map. These
relationships may be important in understanding new information or in constructing
a structured essay plan. By personalizing the
map with your own symbols and designs you will
be constructing visual and meaningful
relationships between ideas which will assist in
your recall and understanding.
- Draw quickly on unlined
paper without pausing, judging or editing
- All of these things promote linear thinking
and the idea of mind mapping is to think
creatively and in a non-linear manner. There
will be plenty of time for modifying the
information later on but at this stage it is
important to get every possibility into the mind
map. Sometimes it is one of those obscure
possibilities that may become the key to your
knowledge of a topic.
- Write down key ideas - Some students find that using capital letters
encourages them to get only the key points.
Capitals are also easier to read in a diagram.
You may, however, wish to write down some
explanatory notes in lower case. Some students
do this when they revisit the mind map at a
later date while others write in such things as
assessment criteria in this way.
- Put the main idea in the centre - Most students find it useful to turn their
page on the side and do a mind map in
"landscape" style. With the main idea or topic
in the middle of the page, this gives the maximum
space for other ideas to radiate out from the
- Leave lots of space - Some of the most useful mind maps
are those which are added over a period of time. After
the initial drawing of the mind map, you may wish
to highlight things, add information or add
questions for the duration of a subject right up
until exam time. For this reason, it is a good
idea to leave lots of space.
