Mind mapping is an excellent way to summarize large quantities of information. I love it because there is no right or wrong way to mind map. You simply begin with a concept and branch off -adding information that seems pertinent. When you are finished, the result is a condensed, birds-eye-view of your topic.
As I complete the Pre Work in preparation for the start of the camp in March, I will periodically stop and summarize what I have learned on a mind map. Above you will see the first of many.
