PLC Series: Mind Mapping

Welcome to the Heinemann PD Professional Learning Community Series. This month we will discuss how to tap into the power of visual memory.

Last week, we explored the idea of sketchnoting with author Tanny McGregor, a practice that engages multiple modalities that support the brain’s processes to absorb and use new information. If you had not heard the word sketchnoting before, perhaps you have encountered the term mind mapping.

This Heinemann Digital Library article by Daniel Weinstein, a Long Island educator with over 20 years of secondary teaching experience, shares numerous examples of mind mapping to convey the possibilities of this practice in teaching and learning such as to:

  • personalize own learning
  • discover new motivation for note taking
  • create gateway to creating art
  • serve as conduit of information
  • be a part of the process OR be the product

Daniel also shares with us two video clips that give you an opportunity to see how he teaches students to mind map—with a mind map— as well as hear from a student about how mind mapping helps him deal with depression.
