social, health, political imagery through the lens of George J Huba PhD © 2012-2015

The rules of mind mapping are pretty simple. In their most general form they are …

  • Draw or paste a picture in the middle of the page

  • Draw branches from the central picture (idea) toward the outside of the page

  • Label the branches with major ideas

  • Look at the radiating picture as if it were a clock

  • Start with the branch at about 1 o’clock as your first idea

  • Label the branch with a major idea

  • Go clockwise and draw another branch and label it

  • Go clockwise and draw another branch and label it

  • Repeat

  • Next for each branch, draw some sub-branches for variations on the major idea

  • Sub-branches can have sub-branches

  • Each sub-branch should be more specific that the branch or sub-branch on which it is located

  • Keep looking at the map and adding or deleting branches and sub-branches

  • Do some memorable formatting with colors and flowing branches and font sizes

Got that, right?

OR maybe I should show you this?
