Concept Maps as a Learning Strategy
The concept map is a hierarchical graphic representation of a set of key concepts linked together by links defining their relationships, thus improving information accessibility and memorization. It is an active teaching strategy for active learners that promotes scientific knowledge building and meaningful learning. It enables students to become self-directed learners acquiring the skills of critical thinking and well-founded decision making. In addition, it helps teachers clarify the meaning of key concepts in a classroom discussion, identify misconceptions, assess learners' cognitive structures, and measure their prior knowledge and progress. This concise book (only 52 pages, edited in several languages, e.g., English, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish) describes several aspects of conceptual maping (whose iterative developing process requires real learning from both teachers and learners) in a divulgative manner, and hence it is a good complement to logical techniques (such as those of formal concept analysis) that automatically allow to extract the concept lattice of a given subject, thus becoming a fundamental tool to be able to customize the learning path of a given student.
