Webinars

How do you respond to or develop an interest? What are the benefits of 3D mind mapping session? How do you find connections in learning and evidence this?  How does it relate Talking Tubs and Floorbooks?

 

In this practical and inspirational webinar, Claire will guide you thorough the 3D Mind Mapping methodology (developed from Tony Buzan’s 2D Mind Mapping) to consider children’s learning styles, making the approach more stimulating and memorable for kinaesthetic and visual learners. 

 

A 3D Mind Map involves a group of children sitting around a black talking and thinking mat and using strips of paper, wool and props to link their learning and comprehension of a subject.  A 3D mind map is often used as a baseline to establish knowledge and interest levels regarding lines of enquiry. It can also be used for summative assessment. 

 

This methodology is often interweaved with a Talking Tub in combination or following a talking tub session.  The Floorbook documents and illustrates these discussions.  

 

In the question and answer session, Claire will address your practical issues and any questions about 3D Mind Maps.
