Event Details

Digital concept maps: a tool for teaching and learning

Concept maps – those familiar blob-and-arrow diagrams that depict knowledge about something – are a great tool for learners. In this session we want to show you how we used digital concept maps to accompany TV science programmes as a way of helping viewers better grasp and remember the scientific ideas in the programme. We want to use our experience to encourage a discussion about how you could use concept maps to augment your lectures. We will also show you how to create digital concept maps using a tool called Cmap.

Note: In order to participate in this session, you will need to bring a laptop with the CMap platform installed on it. CMap is free and can be downloaded here: http://cmap.ihmc.us/download/
