Create mindmaps to help you get the bigger picture without losing sight of the detail.
Why make mindmaps?
Mindmaps are diagrams with a central starting point that you add branches to.
They can show you the connections between different elements of a topic, providing a big picture without losing sight of the detail. They’re particularly recommended for visual learners.
Tips for making great mindmaps
- Mindmaps are useful for essay planning as well as revision – put the title at the centre with the key themes branching off
- Use different colours for each branch of the mindmap
- Making mindmaps online is helpful as they are easily changed and developed
- Use mindmaps to give you the overview of a topic or subject and then make cards to provide the detail.
