What's a Mind Map?

A mind map is a visual display of all the connections and networks you can come up with to connect topics, exercises, and activities. In our closing webinars, the LTP team often leads groups to all brainstorm together on how to mobilize, share, and connect language technology work with other language project and throughout the community.
