abstract
The study focuses on learning strategies students from the third grade of primary education can apply for effectively processing, acquiring, and learning information. Working with Mind Maps seems promising in supporting students in this domain. We explore how children structure, process and learn text information with or without author-provided and student-generated Mind Maps. Also specific learner characteristics are taken into account.
