This article was written by Martha Inés Gómez Betancur (a NovaMind customer), edited by Gideon King (founder of NovaMind) and published in “Trilogia: Revisa Ciencia Tecnologia Sodiedad” number 10.

The full title is “Using Mind Mapping as a method to help ESL/EFL students to connect vocabulary and concepts in different contexts.” Follow the link to read the article and download the PDF.

It includes information about brain research, vocabulary acquisition, learning styles and Mind Mapping, with full references and three class activities. Although it was written a while ago, we have only just received the printed copy and got the link to the PDF.
