Can children create mind maps as planning tools for writing?
Cockburn, Elaine (2011) Can children create mind maps as planning tools for writing? PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This thesis reports an investigation into primary-aged children's ability to learn how to construct mind maps and use these as a tool to support thinking and planning for written tasks. Little research has investigated the kinds of mind map produced by 7-11 year old children, or the impact on an associated written task. It is argued therefore that a closer examination of these claims might shed light on how children learn and use such representations.
