Title: The Value of Concept Maps in Science and Math Education


1
Key Ideas Underlying Concept Maps and How They
are Used
Joseph D. Novak Professor Emeritus, Cornell
University Senior Research Scientist Institute

  • Based on
  • A Theory of Knowledge
  • A Theory of Learning

3
A Theory of Knowledge
All knowledge is built up from Concepts and
Propositions
4
A Theory of Knowledge
Concept A perceived regularity or pattern in
events or objects, or records of events or
objects, designated by a label
5
A Theory of Knowledge
Proposition Two or more concepts combined to
form a statement about something a unit of
meaning
6
A Theory of Knowledge
Concept Maps A tool to represent the Structure
of knowledge
7
Concept Map about Concept Maps
8
New Theory of Learning
Key idea Each person must construct her/his
own meanings for concepts and propositions from
experiences over time, building her/his knowledge
structure
9
Traditional Model of Instruction
10
Key Memory Systems of the Brain

13
Learning may vary from highly rote to highly
meaningful
14
Learning by rote usually leads to rapid
forgetting.

Audio- Tutorial lesson in 1966
16
Birth of Concept Maps
Overwhelmed by hundreds of transcripts from
interviews with children, we sought a better way
of representing changes in childrens
understanding of science concepts Thus was born
the tool we call concept maps

The Institute for Human and Machine
Cognition created CmapTools in the 1990s and
continue to refine the tools.

this map.
24
CmapTools together with the Internet Permits
development of a New Model for Education
25
We can provide expert skeleton concept maps to
guide learners.
26
Proyecto Conectate seeks to introduce all 4th-6th
students in Panama to use CmapTools and the
Internet to build their own knowledge models
27
Panamanian chidren are excited about learning
this way.
28
All kinds of learning experiences can
be integrated to create a digital portfolio.

You are pioneers who shall help to
transform Mathematics Education.
