4 Ways to GRASP Innovation

GRASP the Solution by Chris Griffiths

1. Brainstorm the right way

Contrary to popular belief, a team brainstorming session is often the death of big ideas.

The problem is, we are all very impressionable creatures and can’t help but react to those around us.

Mind Map your lesson plan in 8 easy steps

Mind Mapping a lesson plan

Creating a lesson plan can be time consuming; a luxury that teachers simply do not have. As a result, lesson planning often doesn’t get the amount of attention that it should. However, Mind Mapping your lesson plan can save you time, as well as vastly improve the structure and clarity of your lesson. Having a visual overview of your plan will also allow you to easily spot the gaps where you have forgotten something, ensuring you have everything covered. Your notes will be clear and concise; great for when you have a substitute teacher covering your class!

Using Mind Mapping software such as iMindMap will give you ultimate flexibility when creating your lesson plan. Your items can be easily edited, deleted or moved around the map, and also customised to bring your personal creativity to lesson planning. In addition, you can attach appended notes, files and website links straight to your Map that can be accessed at any point with a single click. iMindMap encourages collaboration between teachers as it allows you to share your Maps in a number of digital formats including image, PDF, webpage, PowerPoint and SVG.
