The power of images and text: mind mapping for learning

How often have you heard the expression “A picture is worth a thousand words”? It’s inherently true. Within a split second of seeing an image your brain interprets multiple factors, and led you to think in a certain way.

Even in the meetings we attend, we all use symbols to convey things that would otherwise take time to write out.
