Idea Map #36 - Learning French & Hint #13

As another school year begins, learners around the globe might be encouraged to see an Idea Mapping example created by a fellow student, Erica Ervin. In 2002, Erica was a junior at Willow Run High School in Ypsilanti, Michigan. It was the first of several school years where I taught Idea Mapping to the students and faculty. In this map she outlines a chapter in her French book. Hint #13 is to create a map of a subject you need to remember, then review it on a daily basis until you can recreate it from memory. The 55 students who participated in this first group improved their average GPA's by nearly half a point as a result of applying idea mapping to their studies.

Dear Ms. Nast: Love your idea maps. I've been using mind maps since 1990, when I discovered Joyce Wycoff's wonderful book on the subject. I'm not a certified instructor, yet, despite Tony Buzan, have held a number of workshops with clients(Wal Mart,etc.). At age 73, I'm still vital(mind and body--old Marine), and have let up on my workshops. I also do a lot of consulting with the thinking processes advocated by Dr. Edward de Bono. I'll keep watching this blogspot.

Congratulations on many counts! A young Marine of 73 that is mentally & physically fit is an accomplishment. Very good that you are introducing idea maps to the world. I'm sure you're making a lasting impact on your clients and their extended circle of influence. Keep up the great work.
