Being a student is a unique and wonderful experience, but it also comes with a lot of pressure.

How to move beyond idea creation in mind maps

Ideas without action are like expensive cars without any fuel… pretty, but not helpful in getting you where you need to go. For the uninitiated, mind maps may seem to be the domain of ideas. A place where creativity happens, but not much else. It’s not hard to see where this perception comes from, because – despite the undisputed power of the mind map – it is most commonly associated with ideation. Yet, just because it’s effective in this area, that doesn’t mean it’s less-than or unapplicable in other areas. In fact, more than that, the mind map is designed to be a flexible and multi-purpose ..read more

It’s no secret that our differences are what make us special. Whether it’s your personal style, talents, or hobbies, the things that make you, you are important.

Neurodivergence refers to conditions such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, and autism (though this is a f ..read more

Charles Kettering once said: “Knowing is not understanding… you can know a lot about something and not really understand it.” This is an important distinction when it comes to neurodiversity because knowing about neurodivergence is not enough, it needs to be truly understood in order for there to be real representation, empathy and inclusion in the workplace. Of course, knowing is still an important step on the way to real understanding. Neurodivergence does not refer to a single condition, and instead references a number of neurological differences including – but not limited to – dyslexia ..read more

Education makes up the foundation of modern society. From our earliest years right through to secondary school, sixth form and – if chosen – higher education, learning is a continual and ongoing process. It is our education which enables us to act as informed moral citizens who are curious about the world around us and eager to grow and succeed in the future.

Workplaces are an important part of society. They are where we spend our time during working hours, and the forefront of productivity for businesses and organizations.

In matters of workplace diversity and innovation, neuro-inclusivity is often overlooked or forgotten. For those not familiar with the term, neuro-inclusivity ..read more

Creativity is often perceived as an elusive property, having to be “summoned” or being deemed impossible to “conjure” in certain environments. Consequently, creativity can be treated like a finite resource – only unleashed in limited scenarios.

The team of digital artists pour their collective inspiration into the production of various digital sticker sets for their clientele to decorate and illustrate digital planners, di ..read more
