4 Summary

You can use mind maps or concepts maps in any topic as they are essentially a revision tool. They will help them to organise information into a form that is easier to remember. They are also a very good way of providing your students with the opportunity to talk about their ideas and to learn from each other. A mind map or a concept map done by an individual student will tell you a great deal about the level of their understanding, so you will be in a better position to support their learning effectively.
