Joseph D. Novak & Alberto J. Cañas Institute for Human and Machine Cognition Pensacola Fl, 32502 www.ihmc.us Technical Report IHMC CmapTools 2006-01 Rev 2008-01 Introduction Concept maps are graphical tools for organizing and representing knowledge. Figure 1. (click on the image to display a larger image) Another characteristic of concept maps is that the concepts are represented in a hierarchical fashion with the most inclusive, most general concepts at the top of the map and the more specific, less general concepts arranged hierarchically below. Another important characteristic of concept maps is the inclusion of cross-links. A final feature that may be added to concept maps is specific examples of events or objects that help to clarify the meaning of a given concept. Concept maps were developed in 1972 in the course of Novak’s research program at Cornell where he sought to follow and understand changes in children’s knowledge of science (Novak & Musonda, 1991).

What is Mind Mapping? (and How to Get Started Immediately) A mind map is a graphical way to represent ideas and concepts. It is a visual thinking tool that helps structuring information, helping you to better analyze, comprehend, synthesize, recall and generate new ideas. Just as in every great idea, its power lies in its simplicity.

3 Ways Concept Maps Help You Learn - Thinker Academy Concept maps are pictures that that show how ideas relate to each other. In a concept map, ideas are represented as nodes, and the relationships between them as links with descriptive labels. Concept maps can be very large and complex—and they can be very small and simple. Notes on academic writing I can’t give you a magic recipe for academic writing but I can describe my own practice, and share with you examples of what worked for me and what didn’t. I’ll illustrate this essay with examples from my own papers. So I’m not slagging off anybody’s work but my own. I take responsibility for all errors pointed out below, including when the paper was written in collaboration. Table of contents In this essay, we discuss on the technical side:

Cmap Software Introduction The CmapViewer is a software utility to view and embed Cmaps that are stored in CmapServers. It is the default Web viewer for Cmaps stored in the Cmap Cloud, the IHMC Sample Knowledge Models Place, and several other IHMC CmapServers. MindMup This operation requires a valid MindMup Gold License. Export, save and embed larger maps using MindMup Gold. We have sent a temporary access code to your e-mail. Best tools and practices for concept mapping Last summer my interest in concept mapping was renewed when I read How Learning Works by Susan Ambrose et al.. At several points in the book they encourage higher educators to use concept maps. It has taken me a while to follow up but, with a little help from the POD List, here we go. Concept map or mind map? Concept mapping and mind mapping are graphic organizers, strategies for visualizing knowledge or graphically representing ideas.

Use the introduction to “sell” the key points of your paper A rule to live by: I won’t use anything I can’t explain in five minutes. (Philip Crosby) Every now and then as editor, I see an author upset at a rejection of a paper because the referee “clearly did not grasp the key point of the paper”. In many cases this is because the key point is not stated prominently enough in the introduction, instead being buried in a footnote, an obscure remark, a lemma, or even not explicitly mentioned at all. This can be as much the fault of the author as it is of the referee; it is incumbent on the author to state as clearly as possible what the merits, novelties, and ramifications of the paper are, and the fact that an expert in the field could read the introduction and not see these is a sign that the introduction is not yet of publication quality.

Five Free Infographic Templates Infographics are a powerful tool for capturing the attention of your target audiences. In fact, businesses that publish infographics grow their traffic an average of 12% more than those that don’t. The hard part, of course, is finding the time and resources to create these infographics. How to use a Concept Map to organize and comprehend information Used as a learning and teaching technique, concept mapping visually illustrates the relationships between concepts and ideas. Often represented in circles or boxes, concepts are linked by words and phrases that explain the connection between the ideas, helping students organize and structure their thoughts to further understand information and discover new relationships. Most concept maps represent a hierarchical structure, with the overall, broad concept first with connected sub-topics, more specific concepts, following.

An interesting article provided by Professor Lee. The connection to cognitive learning (memory) is a fascinating and worthy discussion, which has been recently explored within my education psychology course. by dpoetter Feb 11
