  9. 9. Bubble Us Brainstorming Cognitive Mapping Negotiating KnowledgeThe Unified Learning Model and General Rules of Learning (Shell et al., 2009).Rule 1. New Learning Requires Attention: “Teaching and instruction are about getting learners to attendthings”Rule 2. Learning Requires Repetition: “Teaching needs to include retrieving and for skills, practice”Rule 3. Learning Is About Connections: “Effective teaching and instruction are about insuring that learnersare attending proper connections”Rule 4. Some Learning is Effortless; Some Requires Effort: “Since school is about deliberately learningspecific information and skills, learning in school will be difficult (needs effort)”.Rule 5. Learning is Learning: “At the level of neuron, human learning is human learning, the only differencecomes from previous experiences. What we already know impacts what we can learn next or more easily”

  11. 11. Bubble Us Brainstorming Cognitive Mapping Negotiating KnowledgeWhere to Use Cognitive Maps1. Managing messy or complex data for understanding and easy access (C Eden & Ackermann, 1998; Colin Eden, 2004; Colin Eden & Ackermann, 2004).2. Showing someone’s conceptualization of a domain (Colin Eden, 1992).3. Helping to make sense of the world (Kelly, 1992).4. Communicating one’s own concepts and their relation (Johnson & Johnson, 2002).5. Visualizing argumentations during brainstorming (Shum, Li, Domingue, & Motta, 2003).
