When my kids (twins) were in the first standard I asked them what their favorite subject was; pat came the reply “Hindi”. In the 2nd standard it was “English”, “Maths” in the 5th grade and currently in the 6th grade they drive me crazy at times in the house with their love for “Science” experiments.
When I reflect back on my school days it was clear that I had also experienced something similar many years ago. And I realized it was never about the subject but about the love, care and teaching methodologies of the teachers which ignited my interest in various subjects.
During my last Mind Map workshop, I came across a wonderful batch of highly motivated teachers eager to learn and empower themselves with Mind Map, the radiant thinking tool. Even though most of the teachers were new to the concept of Mind Maps by the end of the session they had started designing wonderful Mind Maps. It was clear that they had taken to Mind Mapping like fish takes to water !
From the extremely encouraging feedback received , I sincerely believe these talented teachers will be carrying forward the torch of mind maps to their students and beyond. Looking eagerly forward to my next workshop with teachers..
