It is believed that curiosity enhances learning and ignites new ideas among students. But, if we are not exposed to new thinking and new ways of doing things, learning becomes monotonous and teaching methods become a routine chore. To inspire students, it is vital that we keep their minds occupied with new and innovative experiences to step outside the conservative mindset. It is an era where we as educational specialists, should allow and introduce students constantly to out of the box mind mapping exercises and challenge them to be creative. It is only then, will one come to learn the optimum capacity and explore the endless possibilities in a highly competitive and advanced society.
