Mapping Inner Space: Learning and Teaching Visual Mapping. Second Edition.
More than 10 years ago, when "Mapping Inner Space" was first published, a few teachers were using this creative technique and teaching it to their students. Today mapping is widely used in schools, universities, and the corporate world, as well. This second edition of the book explores a variety of mapping styles and also takes a fresh look at the process of learning. The book presents a variety of maps, beginning with standardized Mind Maps and then numerous freeform variations, called "Visual Maps" or "Mindscapes." It is organized so that the Mind Mapping technique and how it can be used in the home, school, or business can be quickly learned. Most pages of text in the book have a corresponding visual map (usually in color) on the opposite page. Following a Foreword (Margaret J. Wheatley) and a Preface, the book is divided into these chapters: Introduction: Welcome to the New "Mapping Inner Space"; (1) Learning to Mind Map; (2) Applications; (3) Finding and Creating Symbols; (4) Mapping with Young Students; (5) Mapping with Older Students and Adults; (6) Mapping in Business and Community Settings; (7) Discovering Our Inner Capacities; and (8) Anything Goes! (Contains a 46-item bibliography.) (NKA)
