Transcript of Navigating through learners’ conceptual spaces using e-maps

EXAMPLES OF STUDENT CONCEPT MAPS
Use small icons to attract attention.
Put the theme (main idea, concept) in the center of the map

Links or linking phrases
that connect the concepts
or terms
Example of a Concept Map
Choose a specific concept, topic
(article , reading…)
Select a few
related key terms
Draw arrows between them
+ add a phrase that links terms
Add
cross-links
Cmap of an assigned reading:
K. Popper’s “Heroic Science”
Poor analytical skills
Broad ended topic: in-class exam

generate ideas (brain storming, etc.);
communicate complex ideas;
organize and integrate a complex structure
assess understanding or diagnose misunderstanding.

visual characteristics
of Mind Maps into Concept Maps

Used
“Mindomo”
, a free online software

As a
learning
tool
As a
teaching
tool
As an
assessment
tool
As a
review
tool: greater power to evoke memory than ordinary linear notes
Cmap of an assigned reading:
K. Popper’s “Heroic Science”
Broad ended topic: Biological evolution
Questions?
Our original purpose

Navigating through learners’
conceptual spaces using e-maps
Concept maps and Mind maps (e-maps): what are they?
Why and how we used them
Interpreting e-maps : making learning visible
Assessing e-maps
Evaluating out experience
OVERVIEW
A technique to represent KNOWLEDGE graphically
Concept Mapping
Concept maps were first used by
J.D.Novak from Cornell (1960s)
Cmaps may help us identify the way we think
and the way our students think
Concept Maps: Structure
concepts or terms
MindMap: Structure
According to its inventor,
Tony Buzan, mindmapping
is a
graphical technique
of
taking notes
and
visualizing thoughts/ideas
that are
arranged radially around a
central concept, word or idea.
So what can be done with these maps?
How did we use THEM?
CONCEPT MAPS AND MINDMAPS
Hybrid Approach

Students designed Concept maps to

interpret
readings,
summarize
lectures or
represent their knowledge
of an open ended subject

have students read assigned
readings in depth
Put to multiple use
