problem solving 2 Concept Mapping A particularly good way to organize information about a problem or subject is to construct a "concept map." Construction of concept maps helps us pull together information we already know about a subject and understand new information as we learn. Concept maps consist of nodes and labeled lines. Figure 1 Node is the name for important terms or concepts. Nodes are usually depicted with circles drawn around the term or concept, such as the nodes for "Living Things" and "Plants" drawn above (Figure 1). Innovation Games Goal: This Innovation GameⓇ collaboration framework helps you understand how the “when” affects the “how”.

This four-square model prompts students to think about and describe the meaning of a word or concept by . . . Defining the term, Describing its essential characteristics, Providing examples of the idea, and Offering non-examples of the idea. This strategy stresses understanding words within the larger context of a reading selection by requiring students, first, to analyze the items (definition and characteristics) and, second, to synthesize/apply this information by thinking of examples and non-examples.

If we take notes effectively, however, we can retain and retrieve almost 100% of the information we receive. Learning how to retain information The most effective note-taking skills involve active rather than passive learning.
