Harold Reingold's students post their mind maps developed for his social media class. This is going crazy over on Facebook with all the responses from many social media leaders I respect. Take a look at these and consider the impact of mind maps versus long essays.
See the student work in this gallery for the Adobe Design Achievement Awards. I'm an Adobe Education Leader and have learned a lot about graphic design and their programs through this opportunity. We can always learn more about how to teach graphic design and visual composition - even us rank and file "geeky people." Wow!
If you're decorating or working with art projects - this is a great list.
