Mind Mapping for Education

Illumine Training - Parts of the brain

Using Mind Mapping for education – teaching and learning

It’s a huge responsibility being a teacher. Just to think that an individual’s lifelong aptitude for a subject can be down to how good their teacher is! Mind Mapping can help!

Mind Mapping for Education takes the essential elements of Buzan’s world renowned techniques and helps you to apply them in the classroom, making it easier for you to ensure your teaching is an effective and memorable experience.

Mind Mapping for Education will greatly enhance your teaching skills, benefiting you – and your pupils! If you have a group of teaching staff to train this is the best programme for them.

If you are an individual or teacher looking for mind mapping training we would recommend our ‘Business Mapping’ programmes.
