Mark Dorling, Queen Mary University of London
Come along and learn about concept mapping, have a go at constructing a concept map for a computing topic and, if there is time, we’ll explore how you might use them in your classroom.
There is a rich body of knowledge in other STEM subjects from all phases of education of using concept mapping techniques to plan curricula and lessons, support and record how learners assimilate new knowledge into existing knowledge structures, and correlations in data with traditional methods of assessment as well as helping to identify knowledge gaps and misconceptions… so why not Computing?
Relevant Key Stages: KS2, KS3, KS4, KS5
