The Secret to Student Success

Why You Should Use Mind Maps for Education.

Online mind mapping is an essential tool at all stages of education: from early-years learners to PhD students. Regardless of in-person or distanced learning, it’s a way to connect with students, work on projects asynchronously and develop a deeper understanding of classroom topics. What’s more, the process of mind mapping actually helps students engage and learn the material more efficiently.

Retain Information, Build Memory.

Absorb More Knowledge

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

Infinite Space for Information.

Structure Ideas and Concepts

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.

Connect the Dots.

Draw Connections

Information is only as important as the connections you can draw to it. With MindMeister, it’s easy to take disparate pieces of information and bring them all together on one canvas. Students can begin to see how topics come together and build their critical thinking skills while improving comprehension of a given topic.

“MindMeister’s flexibility and ease of access are central to my enjoyment of the tool: it lends itself to use by any hands, not just those of an artist.”
