Thinking Skills


Mind maps were developed in the late 60s by Tony Buzan to help students make notes that used only key words and images. They are much quicker to make, and because of their visual quality much easier to remember and review. The non-linear nature of mind maps makes it easy to link and cross-reference different elements of the map.

Mind Maps® are now used throughout the world by businesses, schools and universities and are recognised as one of the most effective and versatile thinking tools available.
