2. Why change how we study?

2.1. Barney Fife and the Preamble to the Constitution

2.2. Status quo

2.2.1. Teachers Focus on WHAT to learn Little emphasis on HOW to learn

2.2.2. Students Focus on EXAMS Little emphasis on LEARNING

2.3. Most use inefficient learning strategies

2.3.1. Reading & rereading

2.3.2. Rote memorization

2.3.3. Highlighting

2.3.4. Cramming

2.4. Poor memory & learning

2.4.1. Not finding key concepts

2.4.2. Not making sense of info

2.4.3. Not thinking critically

2.4.4. Not connecting info

2.4.5. Not able to generalize

2.5. Students need help with learning how to learn

3. Why study with mind maps?

3.1. Information Processing Model

3.1.1. Sensory memory Each sense Half-second Attention

3.1.2. Short-term memory (working memory) Half-minute Thinking 7 bits of info

3.1.3. Long-term memory Relatively permanent Depth processing Unlimited

3.2. Mind maps

3.2.1. Structure & flexibility

3.2.2. Visual Big picture Key concepts Details

3.2.3. Integrate new info with existing knowledge Elaborative interrogation Self-explanation Scaffolding Understanding Misconceptions

3.2.4. Connections Information Real-life

3.2.5. Active engagement Mind mapping process Self-directed

3.2.6. Personally meaningful Makes sense Reflection
