Kurt Bearinger - Idea Map or Mind Map of His Future Natalie Sims - Idea Map or Mind Map on Ballroom DancingNellie Nelson - Idea Map or Mind Map About BasketballThis is the 8th set of Idea Mapping examples from Dr. Tim Schweizer’s Spring 2012 students. I have been following Tim’s work since October 2009 — shortly after he attended one of my Idea Mapping Workshops. Search this blog on “Luther College” for more examples.

Tim has developed a solid process to successfully teach Idea Mapping to his students. Tim takes the first two class periods to teach this tool to his students. Their first assignment is to create a map with “Who Am I?” as the topic. You can see many of those examples on this blog. Their second assignment is a take home assignment to create an idea map on their topic of choice. These examples are from this second assignment. The first one is about Kurt Bearinger’s Future, the second is Natalie Sim’s idea map about ballroom dancing, and lastly is Nellie Nelson’s example about basketball. More of these here.

Sure wish I’d learned Idea Mapping when I was in college. Thank you Kurt Bearinger, Natalie Sims, and Nellie Nelson for sharing your maps!
