is Memory Mapping?
mapping is not a new idea; however the development in this area has shown that there are specific ways of mapping thoughts,
which will help the organisation of ideas and to remember what you have written.
You can use memory mapping for almost anything that you want to organise for example:
There are many computer programs such as VisualMind®, Inspiration® and MindGenius®
which help you to produce memory maps on your computer however you can also memory map on paper.
How to Memory Map
Here are some simple instructions:
What you will need:
Plain A4, or larger, paper
Place your paper so it is landscape
Start with a picture or image that represents the topic.
From the picture write your first title, heading or main theme. This should be written in capitals.
Near the word draw a picture or image to represent the word.
Under the writing draw a line, like a branch of a tree, to fit the word.
From the branch write out subheadings or connected ideas
Continue for all main ideas
Here is an example of my first memory map:
