Concept
Mapping
 
 What
is
a
Concept
Map?
 
 
 A
concept
map
is
a
diagram
created
to
demonstrate
the
relationship
between
concepts
or
facts
in
a
knowledge
model.

 In
 the
 collaborative
 learning
 environment,
 the
 advantage
 of
 a
 concept
 mapping
 is
 that
 the
 collaborative
 learning
 process
is
active
between
participants
who
discuss
and
then
create
the
concept
map
in
real
time.

In
addition,
learning
 can
occur
from
a
distance
if
the
concept
map
is
hosted
on
server
with
offsite
users
using
client
software
to
participate
in
 the
process.
 
 What
is
the
difference
with
mind
mapping?

 
 Mind
 mapping
 is
 a
 similar
 to
 concept
 mapping.
 
 Mind
 mapping
 has
 more
 constraints
 in
 that
 it
 presents
 ideas
 and
 relations
in
a
radial
and
non‐linear
fashion,
encouraging
a
brainstorming
approach
to
planning
and
organizational
tasks.

 The
 radial
 hierarchies
 and
 tree
 structure
 elaborate
 the
 central
 concept
 in
 mind
 maps
 whereas
 in
 concept
 maps
 the
 pattern
is
more
diverse.
 
 Concept
Mapping
Software
 
 Concept
 mapping
 is
 done
 on
 a
 blank
 sheet
 of
 paper
 or
 computer
 screen.
 
 There
 are
 numerous
 vendors
 who
 have
 created
 concept‐mapping
 software,
 both
 commercial
 products
 and
 freeware.
 
 
 The
 main
 differences
 are
 in
 the
 capabilities
in
terms
of
links,
nodes,
elements,
etc.
 Creating
a
Mind
Map
 
 Creating
a
mind
map
is
quite
easy.

The
software
is
essentially
a
simple
matter
of
clicking
to
create
a
relation
box,
 entering
text,
and
then
dragging
to
create
links.

The
more
difficult
part
is
to
distill
the
concept
knowledge
into
its
 component
parts
and
relationships!
 Where
can
I
find
more
information?
