iMindMap – A back to school must have

Now that the busy Christmas and New Year period is over, our routines are finally getting back to normal. January may already be in full swing, but how many of you are scurrying around trying to finish last year’s assignments? Misplaced work and inefficient planning means that we’re setting ourselves up for a fall before we head back through the school gates.

Make sure you leave your unproductive ways in last year’s books and make this term a success from start to finish. Execute assignments, track your timetable and maintain all your notes using iMindMap. Read on to see our top tips for starting a new school term on the right track, and set yourself up for a stress-free year.

Transform your timetable


Mind Maps are a great way to keep your schedule in order. Get prepared for busy timetables by creating a Mind Map of your lessons, assignments, extracurricular activities and revision, then identify where your time needs to be spent. Use Parent Branches to note down each day of the week. Then, add Child Branches for the topics you need to focus on. By allocating time to each subject, you can break down your workload and have a clear view of your priorities.

Use Icons such as coloured flags to help indicate the urgency of your workload and how much effort is required. Avoid distraction and collapse branches to ensure you’re focused on your timetable for today only. When a new day arrives, simply expand existing branches to view your entire Mind Map again.
