How can mind mapping help you to succeed with your studies ? What advantage can visual thinking tools give you ?
These are the themes we will explore through a conference and a workshop at the Hub Brussels in September.
Firstly, let’s focus on the conference.
People usually say that we use 10 % of our brain capacities. That is totally untrue. The brain is an awesome organic machine that brings to work millions of neurones at the same time. But we use it in different ways according to our genre, our age, our culture.
And we can use it in better ways !
Our brain is composed of two hemispheres but our education and our school training favors only one of them : the left brain. Which is the rational, sequential and logical part of our brain. But there is another part, the right one, which is more intuitive, associative and which grasps everything in one go. The picture here below perfectly illustrates that partition of our brains.
Most of the time, men use their left brain, while women tend to use both hemispheres at the same time. Mind mapping reconciles us with a more holistic use of our grey matter : with its very logical and hierarchical structure, its stimulates the left brain, while the use of keywords, pictures and colours tickles our right brain and enhances our creativity skills.
Mind mapping, with its radiant and associative thinking also helps you to memorize better, which for students is a real gift : with the support of mind mapping, visual and lateral thinking techniques, you will learn faster and remember for a longer time. Isn’t that good news ?
During this conference, we will :
discover together the principles of mind mapping
find out why it works
how students can best use it for :
taking efficient notes
see what you can get from mind mapping softwares
And much more !
