This is one reason concept mapping can be a very powerful evaluation tool.2. Students in the group using image-based concept mapping performed better than the group using text-based concept mapping on the cognitive level of understanding and creating.3. Motivation of students to choose to learn by attempting to incorporate new meanings into their prior knowledge, and not by rote memory.4.

The teaching strategy of image-based concept mapping could potentially assist students in learning meaningfully in the context of mobile learning.3. A learning tool but also acts as an evaluation tool.
