Whatever tool you choose to create mind maps, with a little practice, it will eventually become user-friendly. It's all about taking the time to explore various applications on your own (take a look at the comparative table on this page or on this practical ticket) and select the most suitable one.

Tip: if your application does not allow you to save your map as an image (JPG or other), you can print your screen (PC: "Print screen" key + Windows or FN on the keyboard, Mac: CMD + SHIFT keys + 4 then select the zone) then paste this image into an image processing software (such as Paint, for example). All you have to do is select your card and save it in the desired format.

As it was explained in this file, mental maps make it possible to enhance the academic success and involvement of students. With a minimum of investment, the teacher obtains maximum results. In a few weeks, everyone will master this method and make it a tool that meets all educational needs, or almost!

If you want more, check out this interesting summary file by Laetitia Carlier, educational psychologist. Do you prefer the image to the reading? In this conference for teachers (57 minutes for first part; 50 minutes for the second), Gérard Cervi, specialist in mind mapping, takes a captivating round of the question, while encouraging letting go to allow the brain to function at peak performance.

With that, good exploration!
