How to Teach Your Kids Mind Mapping

Many of the adults who took my mind mapping training, or participated in one of my other training courses where I explained mind mapping, go home and explain mind mapping to their children. Often, their children love to create mind maps. Still the process of learning children to mindmap is something most parents don’t really know.

The most important thing you should tell them is to connect information with each other and to create small images with lots of colors from the information.

You probably won’t have to tell them they should use few words. Their mind is like a sponge which absorbs lots of information and only needs one keyword to remember all the information. Inspire them to create small pictures, use few words, and connect all the information.

When you do this your child will easily pick up the art and skill of mind mapping. In fact, I think the mindmaps your son or daughter draws look much more like original mind maps then the ones you create. The reason for this is your child’s natural ability to think in pictures.

All of the above mentioned information is only allowing you to instruct your child how to create a mind map. The real test begins when you take their original information, for example their work book or their summary, and you compare this with the mindmap. Read the rest of this entry »
