Jason Lentz - Jujitsu Idea Map

Jacob Fouts - LinkedIn.com Idea MapIdea Mapping helps two more college students. The first posting for this Spring’s Idea Mapping Experiment at Luther College was May 19 where there is more background. Now get ready for part 4!

Dr. Tim Schweizer spent one 60-minute class teaching them the concepts and guidelines of Idea Mapping. They read chapters 2-5 of the Idea Mapping book, and then spent a second 60-minute class practicing and applying their new skills.

Their assignment was to create an idea map that would be relevant to them either personally, professionally, or academically. He gave them several topic suggestions and allowed for either hand drawn or computer generated maps.

Above you will find Idea Maps #243 & #244. The top one was created by Jason Lentz to report on the history, basics, origin, etc about Jujitsu. The second one is from Jacob Fouts. This map lays out the various components to building a LinkedIn Profile. Jacob’s personal thoughts about Idea Mapping were, “I think what makes idea mapping an easy concept to learn is that this method was developed to correlate with how the brain works, making this technique seem more natural to implement.” Thank you both for sharing these!
