Mindmapping vs. Note taking

Posted by Haja on March 6, 2010 in Brain Power!, Mindmap |

Traditional ways of taking notes which are linear is considered to be the standard way of taking notes.  The traditional way of note taking has three key elements to it –

  1. 1. Linear Pattern – the notes are usually written in straight lines. Grammar, Chronology & sequences are typically used.
    2. Symbols- more often than not, words, letters and numbers are used.
    3. Analysis – Various analysis was used but its quality is ffected by the linear patterns.
      However, to be effective and using the Whole Brain – the left as well as the right cortex, it should also include the following –
      – Visual Rhythm
      – Visual Pattern
      – Colour
      – Image
      – Visualization
      – Dimension
      – Spatial Awareness
      – Association
      All these are important from a perspective of “Complete Learning” – which is where Mind mapping comes in.
      Use Mindmap’s as a way of using your Whole Brain- which in turn is a way of you living to your full potential.
      I will write more on these areas in the coming days.
      Adieu for now.
