Asian_map_04Here you will see another take on the police responsibilities (at least that is my take on it – what does a policeman do? ).  This was created during a “how to” make a map course.  Click on the image to view it in a larger format.


Who am I? Why am I here?

My small business is GAL – Goldberg Advanced Learning.  I conduct workshops on idea mapping across the spectrum of uses.  In my day job, I am actually an assistant professor at the University of West Georgia in the department of Media and Instructional Technology.  As mapper since 1976, I know the power of mapping and what it can do for you in any field.  People always ask me why I am so productive.  The secret, put simply, is mapping.  My specialty is education, however, my most important success (in my mind) is Gustavo Chicarino from Brasil.  Gustavo works for an international corporation and uses Mind Manager to work with his projects.  He has written articles and book chapters about his experiences with mapping.  I will post a map from him in the near future.

Mapping in class

Normally I use my tablet pc to draw out a quick map when working with students and it is projected to the front of the classroom.  At the start of summer school, the hardware was not working and the instructor who was using the room before me warned me as I walked in.  Because I am an idea mapper, I simply used hand drawn maps on the whiteboard to discuss a needs assessment from A to Z.  The tried and true, who, what, where, why, how worked perfectly and we did not miss a beat.  Moral of the lesson: Traditional hand drawn maps have many uses and this is one of them.
