7.3 Make a Mind Map of Your Learning Network

Below is the mind map I created using MindMeister:

In my own teaching, I used mind maps a lot when I taught in the elementary classroom.  I found them a great tool to use in writing, science, and social studies.  I also used them in math as a way for students to demonstrate concepts with pictures, numbers, and words.  Now that I am no longer in the classroom, I see myself using mind maps as I work with teachers to plan for the future.  Specifically, with Alberta putting out new curriculum my colleagues and I are using mind maps as one tool to help teachers plan for implementation.
