Mentor Mapping – how your computer can help you think

Here’s my new video on computer aided problem solving and thinking.
All you need is the free mind map software FreeMind. Alternatively you can use Freeplane.
The basic idea is to make your computer your mentor, using a “Mentor Map”.
Like a friendly mentor, this map will provide advice on

  • how to start,
  • how to make good plans or
  • how to deal with obstacles.

      I’ve sent some information to your email account.
      After installing FreeMind, you start it two times – one instance for the mentor map, and one for the work map.
      You can swap between the two windows by using ALT + TAB, or by arranging them as shown in the video.
      For basic information about FreeMind, start with the “Help->Help…” menu item.
