Visual thinking is a set of drawing techniques that combine images and text to capture content from any area. It constitutes a facilitation strategy to develop group work processes, or as a study technique for personal use. Although visual thinking is framed within the business world, in Spain has been detected in educational centers (primary and secondary schools), increasingly visual learning environments where the overabundance of information encourages the adoption of strategies that allow structuring content in a simplified and attractive way. This article presents research that derives from a training workshop about mind maps for future primary school teachers, developed by an expert in two different campuses of the University of XXXX. Through the realization of mental maps by students, we intend to observe the graphic materialization of their thinking on a specific topic, detecting common features and possible points of difficulty. We also seek to collect information about their perception of the educational potential of mind maps, as learning tools. From a methodological perspective, we use constant comparison, belonging to Grounded Theory, to analyze the formal characteristics of the maps drawn by students. On the other hand, an expressly designed questionnaire is carried out in order to obtain information about their knowledge and previous experiences around the subject, difficulties experienced and perceived educational usefulness. The data obtained support both the utility of the radial structures in the presentation of contents and the interest of the students in learning this technique for the future performance of their profession.
