This technique was developed by Tony Buzan in the seventies. He studied how our

brain works and tried to give learning a similar structure. He compares the

creative power of our brain to the global net (internet) but he points that our brain

has more advantages:

– More power

– Faster

– Efficiency to generate his own information

– More parameters

The question is: How to connect ideas to make them more efficient, more creative

and learn faster. The mind maps connect your inside with the world around you.


– It doesn’t matter if you draw well or not. The images are just for you.

– Enjoy: use the colours you like the most, the kind of

images/drawings/letters you prefer. And forget about if they are or are not

well done.

– Be focused: don’t care about the others’ work as you are doing yours. As you

get more focused the ideas will come to your brain easier.


– To create connections among concepts.

– To have all the information and the possibilities in just one page.

– To work easier through a project in a group: the others can visualize my

ideas and I have a structure to communicate them.



1- Conquer the CENTRE: so your brain can go in all directions.

2- DRAW an IMAGE to symbolize the principal idea.

3- Use COLOURS: because they stimulate your brain and convert the work into game.

4- CONNECT: place the key words and concepts around the centre.

5- Use WAVES. Straight lines tire the brain out.

6- CHOOSE the word: use just ONE CONCEPT per line. Be convincing and conclusive and give freedom to your ideas.

7- Use lots of IMAGES. One image is more powerful than one thousand words.
