Mind Mapping and the Common Core

Mind Mapping and the Common Core | Ideas for teaching with Technology | Scoop.it

Mind Mapping is a graphical way to represent ideas and concepts. It is a visual thinking tool that helps structure information, helping you to better analyze, comprehend, synthesize, recall, and generate new ideas. 
In a mind map, information is structured in a way that resembles much more closely how your brain actually works. Since it is an activity that is both analytical and artistic, it engages your brain in a much, much richer way, helping in all its cognitive functions. It is easy and FUN!
