They are much quicker to make, and because of their visual quality much easier to remember and review. The non-linear nature of mind maps makes it easy to link and cross-reference different elements of the map. –Peter Russell Mind Mapping is an alternative method of note taking, one which uses an artistic (stream of consciousness) approach. A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks or other items linked to and arranged radially around a central key word or idea. It is used to generate, visualize, structure and classify ideas, and as an aid in study, organization, problem solving, decision making, and writing. - WikiPedia Slide 3: Tony Buzan, the father of Mind Mapping Slide 4: The next slide is from Chris Keffe of Organic Forms Design in Ashland, Oregon.
