Mike Redig - Idea Map or Mind Map about Ultimate Frisbee

Kendal Van Der Poest Clement - Cultural Differences Between the USA and New Zealand

Victoria Yin - Idea Map About Who She IsIdea Mapping helps three final Luther 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 7! This will wrap up all of the examples from Dr. Schweizer’s students. Next examples will be from the Fall 2010 class.

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 #255 & #256. The top one was created by Mike Redig about the sport Ultimate Frisbee. The second one is from Kendal Van Der Poest Clement. This idea map looks at the cultural differences between the USA and New Zealand. The third and final example is from Victoria Yin and it is about her. Thank you for sharing these!
