    15. 15. David Ausubel (1968) “If I had to reduce all of educational psychology to just one principle I would say this: The most important single factor influencing learning is what the learner already knows. Ascertain this and teach him accordingly.” * Epigraph, Educational Psychology: A cognitive viewAn Introduction to Concept Maps – Gavin W. Maneveldt & Louis Fourie

Key ideas 2.Meaningful Learning requires: 1.“The material learned MUST be conceptually clear and presented with language and examples relatable to the learner’s prior knowledge.” 2.“The learner MUST possess prior knowledge.” 3.“The learner MUST choose to learn meaningfully.” David Ausubel (1968)An Introduction to Concept Maps – Gavin W.
