Mind Mapping the GCSE course

I’m preparing some materials to refresh the walls of my classroom, during half term. I’ve grabbed some free posters from CAS etc. but I could not find what I really wanted, a Mind Map of the course. So I made one.



Above is a screengrab. I made this with the free open-source FreeMind tool. It’s a bit of a minefield of a tool, but I tried it because it is free and creates only XML so my data will never get locked in. As the makers of FreeMind say “If you have a lot of maps created by FreeMind and you want to switch to another program, writing a conversion program should be easy, especially if that program features Visual Basic scripting facility.” – Er, yes, no problem for this CS teacher. Ahem.

So if you like this, here is a link to a zip file on my Google Drive of various formats to use with FreeMind. I particularly like the clickable HTML, but I have not yet worked out how best to exploit it. Ideas welcome!
