Conceptual diagram showing the benefits of Learning Enhancement with three main branches: Mind Maps, Generative AI, and Faster Learning. Each branch has sub-branches detailing specific aspects such as Visual Learning, Organizing Thoughts, Enhancing Memory under Mind Maps; Personalized Learning Content, Interactive Learning Experiences, Automated Assessment under Generative AI; and Integration of Concepts, Immediate Feedback, Access to Diverse Resources under Faster Learning

This changes everything about learning: Mind mapping with ChatGPT can 10x your comprehension

The way people learn is by seeing, hearing, and doing those things. Once those ideas or actions are seen/heard/done enough, the competency and knowledge gain a foothold in such a way that they eventually convince us that “we have learned” or that “we know” something. While lecture and applied learning techniques exist in the academic environment during the reading of the materials, it could be argued that there are few successful mergers of these learning styles in which multiple learning styles overlap to enhance each other.

The form in which the idea is being presented with mind mapping is a very common way; mostly, we have seen this through whiteboard sessions or in the form of infographics, but the most essential everyday concepts are given in the style “go read about it,” or at best, you might get a video lesson with someone talking most of the time. With mind maps, it is possible to contribute to the “reading/visual” and “doing/tactile” learning styles at the same time. With ChatGPT, you will be able to connect to many different custom GPTs that generate mind maps and flowcharts—meaning, it can push any long-form text or even YouTube video transcripts into the GPT to output a mind map.

These visualizations allow you to represent any given concept visually and, in essence, permit the GPT to do a whiteboard session literally on-the-fly for you and your learning weak points: model any concept visually in such a way that you can be engaged with information that doesn’t look like a wall of text. One great hack would be to also engage your auditory learning style through the use of audio prompting by vocalizing your questions, and you can even engage the GPT to “talk” back to you in the language of your choice.

I think that is a powerful example of one of the ways that AI is going to extend or enhance human ability, by providing more robust tools that help us speed up our natural processes and capacity.
