Examination Special: Revise Using Graphic Organisers

by Reshmi Sen Singh, a freelance soft skill and teacher development trainer based in Bengaluru. 

Here’s another effective way of revising, though it works best if you have time on hand.

Graphic Organisers
Graphic organisers include various kinds of graphs and diagrams that help one organise ideas visually. They help readers classify ideas and communicate effectively. When there is a large amount of information, it is hard for the brain to decode and digest it all.

Graphic organisers can organise the information in a logical way. They make it easier to comprehend and memorise information. With vivid shapes, symbols and connectors, graphic organisers help visualise the relationship between different pieces of information. Here are a few ways you can graphically represent what you’ve studied: 
  • Venn diagrams help you to see and understand the common points and differences of things.
  • Cause-and-effect diagrams help map out the causes and results of an event.
  • Flowcharts present sequential relations clearly, step by step.
  • Timelines are helpful for remembering the chronological sequence of historic events.
