Mind map is a tool used to visualize outline information. It consists in a diagram, where the main word is placed in the centre. Around the main idea you can write a single word or text. It is helpful to create some categories which represent tasks, ideas or other items related to a central key word or idea. A mind map can be drawn on the piece of paper (this is the easiest way), or you can also use some websites to do this (for instance: http://www.novamind.com/ ; how to make it).
They can be used to create, structure and classify ideas to see everything clearly written. Mind map could be really useful to write down all thoughts, ideas which you created during brainstorming session.
