Best tools and practices for concept mapping

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. A mind map is a creative way to represent an idea or task, while a concept map is a formal attempt to organize or represent knowledge.Mind maps focus on a central idea; concept maps connect multiple ideas.Mind maps are colorful, use wavy lines, and often include pictures. “Mind Map” is a registered trademark, so it may be less problematic to use “concept map” for everything. Uses of concept maps In the video below, Karen Rohrbauck Stout at Western Washington University explains how she uses concept mapping as an assessment technique.

Abstract Concept Mapping for Planning and Evaluation is a thorough, accessible guide to concept mapping for social or organizational researchers in any context. Trochim, W. (1989a). Abstract Concept mapping is a type of structured conceptualization which can be used by groups to develop a conceptual framework which can guide evaluation or planning. Haque, N., Rosas, S. (2010). This inquiry successfully sequenced and integrated 2 participatory research methods: photovoice and concept mapping. Risisky, D., Hogan, V.K., Kane, M., Burt, B., Dove, C., & Payton, M. (2008).

Genera hojas de tablas y listas de números para contar en incrementos Este generador de hojas de ejercicios permite elaborar tablas de números enteros (con números, sin números o parcialmente rellenas). En las tablas vacías o parcialmente vacías los alumnos tendrán que rellenar las casillas vacías con los números que les corresponden. Con estas tablas puedes practicar el conteo salteado hacia adelante o hacia atrás. Este tipo de ejercicio ayudará a los niños a adquirir un mejor entendimiento de cómo están organizados los números. El generador permite (1) especificar el porcentaje de casillas vacías en el interior de la tabla; (2) seleccionar el incremento para contar salteado de forma progresiva o regresiva (usar "-1" u otro número negativo como incremento para contar regresivamente); (3) escoger si la hoja esta en un formato de tabla o de lista; (4) insertar casillas coloreadas en el interior de la tabla cada cierto número de casillas para una presentación más atractiva del ejercicio. ¿Cómo pagar por los libros Mamut Matemáticas?

Knowledge Models The field of Artificial Intelligence may not have produced fully intelligent machines but one of its major achievements is the development of a range of ways of representing knowledge. A thorough understanding of different knowledge representations is a vital part (arguably the vital part) of Artificial Intelligence, since the ease of solving a problem is almost completely determined by the way the problem is conceptualised and represented. The same is true for the task of communicating knowledge. Knowledge engineers make use of a number of ways of representing knowledge when acquiring knowledge from experts. Three important types of knowledge models are: Ladders: Ladders are hierarchical (tree-like) diagrams. Descriptions and examples of the important types of knowledge models are shown below. Concept Ladder A concept ladder shows classes of concepts and their sub-types. Composition Ladder A composition ladder shows the way a knowledge object is composed of its constituent parts. Frames

Knowledge and Information Visualization This book presents current research and development work in the fields of knowledge visualization and information visualization. In addition to revised reviewed papers presented at an international workshop on Visual Artefacts for the Organization of Information and Knowledge held in Tübingen, Germany in May 2004, invited papers from leading experts are included to round off coverage of relevant aspects. The 19 chapters presented together with an introductory overview are organized in topical sections on background, knowledge visualization, information visualization, visualizing knowledge and information for fostering learning and instruction, and knowledge-oriented organization of information for fostering information use.

Popplet 5 minutes pour une vie J'ai beaucoup aimé cette vidéo. Quatre minutes trente, les joies, les peines, les erreurs et les efforts d'une vie… Le monde n'attend pas. La mort de Noro senseï qui m'a profondément affecté, rappelle à chacun que notre temps sur terre est éphémère. Sa vie est un exemple pour chacun d'entre nous. Merci à Marie qui a partagé cette vidéo avec moi. Partager l'article ! inShare Par Léo Tamaki 5 Roots of visual mapping The first is the Tree of Porphyry - a form of presentation of a taxonomy that embodies a hierarchy, much as a mind map does. Porphyry of Tyre was a Greek philosopher who lived from c.233 to c.309, C.E. . This particular example is from a Philosophy course at the University of Washington. Then there is a facinating business map from the great Walt Disney. Aside from its sparkling clarity of business vision, it is interesting because of its date, 1957: Before Cornell University and Novak did work on concept maps, before Buzan had turned his Mind to Mapping and even before Idea Sunbursting. I came across this on Peter Duke's site, dukeMedia. (Click the image for a full-sized version) Next, my thanks to M.H.F. who commented against my "Who invented mind mapping" article that a novel published in 1931 in England included this conversation: "Mightn't it be a good idea if everyone had to draw a map of his own mind - say, once every five years?

Visual Thinking Evolution A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked to and arranged around a central key word or idea. Especially in British English, the terms spidergram and spidergraph are more common,[1] but they can cause confusion with the term spider diagram used in mathematics and logic. Mind maps are used to generate, visualize, structure, and classify ideas, and as an aid to studying and organizing information, solving problems, making decisions, and writing. The elements of a given mind map are arranged intuitively according to the importance of the concepts, and are classified into groupings, branches, or areas, with the goal of representing semantic or other connections between portions of information. By presenting ideas in a radial, graphical, non-linear manner, mind maps encourage a brainstorming approach to planning and organizational tasks. The mind map can be contrasted with the similar idea of concept mapping. Reference: wikipedia
