Benefits of Mind Mapping for Students

Online mind mapping is a simple yet powerful tool that can greatly benefit students of all ages. The best part? With MindMeister, studying doesn’t even feel like work!

Improved Memory & Recall

Mind maps are full of mental triggers that help your brain comprehend and store concepts more easily. You’ll take less notes, need fewer revisions and still retain more facts than you would with linear notes!


Free Flow of Ideas

Because you mostly use keywords, images and short phrases in mind maps, you can jot down thoughts a lot faster than usual. This free flow of ideas will help you brainstorm creative writing assignments and solve brainteasers.

Structured Information

Mind maps can store and structure vast amounts of information. They display hierarchy, show relationships between single topics and enable you to see the “big picture” at a glance. This also makes them ideal for summarizing texts.


Better Communication

Cloud-based mind mapping helps foster collaboration between students and allows for a more efficient communication between teachers and students. Even the most complex problem is quickly visualized and explained with a map!
