I’ve been using mind-mapping for years and find it important personally and for use with students. I started using it in the late 90’s I guess. I like your idea of having your own handdrawing as well as handwriting. I am trying to build a bit of a sketch vocabulary of things I can put down quickly in notes. For me, using a pen or pencil at all seemed foreign back last fall when I started, and drawing was even more unfamiliar. One of the best things I’ve noticed is…it’s fun!
