43 Intricate Mind Map Illustrations

43 Intricate Mind Map Illustrations
For the uninitiated, a mind map is a graphical organization of ideas and concepts that can be used to facilitate the generation of ideas and the learning process. The reason why this has been argued to be more effective than the traditional method of learning (e.g. rote learning, linear text reading, etc) is because such structuring of ideas and concepts resembles the way our brain works – i.e. via links or associations. Mind mapping is done by connecting one idea to another with the aid of colors and images to tap both sides of our brains. When that happens, creativity gets a boost without compromising our sense of logic. If you’re thinking of how you can start adsopting mind mapping in your learning or brainstorming needs, check out these 43 great examples of how mind maps can be made. Course Structure.

The Mind-Mapping Wiki In a post some months ago, I promised to tell you more about WikIT, the mind mapping wiki but kept getting distracted. Now I have found a few minutes to keep my word. WikIT is a facinating resource. It takes the line that different uses of ‘information maps’ (I’m planning a post about that phrase!) This wiki covers the many types of maps – mind maps, concept maps, argument maps and others. Although it looks a lot like Wikipedia, and has the same types of search facilities, WikIT often uses mind maps for navigation – that must be a boon – and takes advantage of MindManager 8′s ability to deliver Flash and PDF mind maps that work, as well as looking pretty. The best place to start is the list of all the subjects covered by the wiki. Information Tamers, who put this wiki together, have also remedied a hole in my site by adding a list of free mapping software on one of its pages. The master list of mind mapping & information management software Google

3 façons d'utiliser Pinterest en classe Au début janvier, j’ai écrit un article pour vous donner des idées d’utilisations en lien avec la plateforme Instagram. Cette plateforme permet de partager des photos que l’on prend avec un téléphone ou une tablette. Aujourd’hui, je vous présente un autre outil en lien avec l’image. Pinterest est un babillard en ligne sur lequel on peut épingler des images provenant de l’Internet. Selon Wikipédia: Pinterest est un site web américain mélangeant les concepts de réseautage social et de partage de photographies, lancé en2010 par Paul Sciarra, Evan Sharp et Ben Silbermann. Voici un tutoriel qui explique comment l’utiliser. Une enseignante du nom de Laurence Juin a expérimenté cet outil avec sa classe. Ressources : Voici un tutoriel qu’elle a fait pour ses élèves. Pour son expérience, elle a créé un compte unique pour la classe et les élèves devaient y partager des images en liens avec son cours. 1) Créer une galerie de peintures du courant surréaliste 2) Créer un tableau à la manière d’un peintre

Mind Maps Unleash Your Brain's Creativity & Potential Researchers make magnetic graphene -- ScienceDaily Graphene, a one-atom thick sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice, has many desirable properties. Magnetism alas is not one of them. Magnetism can be induced in graphene by doping it with magnetic impurities, but this doping tends to disrupt graphene's electronic properties. Now a team of physicists at the University of California, Riverside has found an ingenious way to induce magnetism in graphene while also preserving graphene's electronic properties. They have accomplished this by bringing a graphene sheet very close to a magnetic insulator -- an electrical insulator with magnetic properties. "This is the first time that graphene has been made magnetic this way," said Jing Shi, a professor of physics and astronomy, whose lab led the research. The finding has the potential to increase graphene's use in computers, as in computer chips that use electronic spin to store data. Study results appeared online earlier this month in Physical Review Letters.

Can robots be creative? Can a robot be creative? Advances in cloud robotics—machines connected to supercomputers in the cloud—have given self-driving cars, surgical robots, and other “smart” devices tremendous powers of computation. But can a robot, even one supercharged with artificial intelligence, be creative? Will a mechanical Picasso paint among us? Ken Goldberg is the ideal person to ask. Today Goldberg is Professor of Industrial Engineering and Operations at the University of California, Berkeley, where he also directs a lab on automation sciences, a center for medical robots, an initiative on data and democracy, and a center for new media. Goldberg has strong views on creativity and how it differs in computers and people. What’s been your most creative moment in science? I spent a summer in graduate school trying to find the mathematical proof of completeness for an algorithm I had written to orient polygonal objects. Einstein talked about how the greatest scientists are also artists. Agreed. Right.

15 Effective Tools for Visual Knowledge Management Since I started my quest a few years ago searching for the ultimate knowledge management tool, I’ve discovered a number of interesting applications that help people efficiently organize information. There certainly is no shortage of solutions for this problem domain. Many tools exist that offer the ability to discover, save, organize, search, and retrieve information. However, I’ve noticed a trend in recent years, and some newer applications are focusing more on the visual representation and relationship of knowledge. Most traditional personal knowledge management (PKM) or personal information management (PIM) applications offer the same basic set of features: * Storage of notes and documents * Search functionality and keyword/tagging capability * Outline view in a traditional hierarchy, or user-defined views * Task management, calendar, and contact management (mainly PIM, not KM) These are essential features, however don’t offer too much to the more visually-inclined knowledge junkies.

Google's DeepMind Builds Artificial Intelligence Computer That Mimics Human Brain Google-owned artificial intelligence (AI) startup DeepMind has unveiled a computer prototype capable of mimicking properties of the human brain's short-term memory. The Neural Turing Machine learns and stores algorithms and data as "memories", which it is then able to retrieve later to perform tasks it has not been previously programmed to do. "We have introduced the Neural Turing Machine, a neural network architecture that takes inspiration from both models of biological working memory and the design of digital computers," Alex Graves, Greg Wayne and Ivo Danihelka from DeepMind wrote in a recent research paper. "Our experiments demonstrate that it is capable of learning simple algorithms from example data and of using these algorithms to generalise well outside its training regime." This new form of AI builds on the work of American cognitive psychologist George Miller, who first began research into the capacity and function of the short-term memory in the 1950s.
