The current era is a multimedia network era. Under the current situation of the big data era, the use of the Internet of Things (IoT) in life is countless. Due to the existence of the IoT, the English Teaching Model is being updated more and more quickly. A series of teaching reforms have made the quality of English teaching more and more high. The purpose of English teaching is to cultivate students with comprehensive language application ability. The traditional English Teaching Model cannot adapt to the rapid development of the IoT era. The application of mind map can well eliminate the drawbacks of the traditional English Teaching Model, and provide students with an open and free imagination space. Based on the influence of English Teaching Model in the IoT era, the introduction of mind map teaching can improve students' logical thinking ability, and inspire imagination and innovative thinking. This paper studied the English Teaching Model based on mind mapping and the cultivation of innovative thinking in the IoT era, and explored the relationship between mind mapping input and academic performance. The experiment proved that the application of mind mapping in English Teaching Model would bring more efficient classroom for teachers and students. In view of the use of mind mapping technology, a questionnaire survey was conducted on 52 students. The survey results showed that 43 students believed that the introduction of mind mapping had a significant role in promoting their academic performance. At the same time, in order to cultivate students' innovative thinking in English, this paper set up a feasible plan to use mind mapping to promote innovative thinking.
