Need a new way to revise?

Bored of making flash cards? Tired of writing out notes? Why not try mind mapping? There are many reasons why drawing a mind map can be a useful way to learn. Just look at this list of the top 100 reasons to mind map compiled by mind mapping guru Paul Foreman. Paul has made a great mind map to give you some help getting started. You can also see more of Paul’s mind maps by visiting his website: http://www.mindmapinspiration.co.uk/#.

Why not choose a topic for yourself and see if you can make a mind map using all the key terms, you could even add some diagrams as well. Alternatively, if you want to do a mind map on the computer there is plenty of mind mapping software available, but a good free one is FreeMind. You can watch this YouTube tutorial to help you get to grips with the FreeMind software.
