How To Mind Map With Tony Buzan

Tony Buzan is a leading expert on the brain and learning, and inventor of the revolutionary Mind-Mapping technique, which he believes is more efficient than conventional methods of writing notes and ideas. In this film Tony talks about how he developed Mind Mapping and how it can be applied in everyday life.

Step 1: Problems With Note-taking

Most people make linear notes that fill a page from left to right, and top to bottom. For most purposes, this not actually the most efficient way for writing notes. 

Step 2: Developing Mind Maps

Mind Maps start with a main idea in the centre of the page. This then has branches coming off it for the most important headings. Each of these headings then has further branches coming off it, so that the information in the Mind Map radiates from the centre outwards. This more closely matches the brain's way of arranging information, and is more effective than linear notes from top to bottom. 

Step 3: Using Mind Maps

The most effective Mind Maps also contain lots of images and different colours, as these help the brain to remember.
Mind Maps have many uses. They can be used to write notes in order to revise for exams, brainstorm for ideas, organise large amounts of information etc
