This study enquires into the extent to which Digital Mind Mapping, when used in conjunction with Collaborative Learning, can currently be applied to improve academic achievement in Islamic Education in primary schools in Saudi Arabia. This study looks for evidence on these questions through a research project using mixed qualitative and quantitative methods. The research itself consists of interviews with teachers and students at primary schools in Qassim, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, together with direct observation of their classrooms, and pre- and post-tests. The conclusions of this research point at various features and educational abilities that influence the effectiveness of using Digital Mind Mapping supported by Collaborative Learning as an educational aid. These features and educational abilities appear to have led to improved academic achievement among students. The research also revealed several obstacles faced by teachers and students in their efforts to integrate Digital Mind Mapping supported by collaborative methods of learning into their classrooms. This study sets forth the importance of changing educational practices in the teaching of Islamic Education and the extent to which this method can improve these practices.
