The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of digital mind mapping over paper-based mind mapping and conventional teaching method on students’ achievement in Environmental Science. For the study, 120 B.Ed trainees of a teacher training institute in Noida were selected. The participants were randomly allocated to three groups: experimental group, control group 1 and control group 2. The teaching method used for the experimental group was digital mind mapping, conventional method for control group 1, and paper-based mind mapping method for control group 2 respectively. A pre-test and post-test control group research design was used. The experimental results suggested that adopting mind mapping strategy can significantly improve students’ achievement in Environmental Science as compared to using conventional method. Furthermore, most of the students were satisfied with using mind mapping to learn Environmental Science. Findings indicated that Digital mind mapping produced the best outcomes, especially in the activities like brainstorming and group discussion.
