Concept mapping techniques for the classrooom

Mark Dorling, Queen Mary University of London

Description

There is a rich body of knowledge in other STEM subjects from all phases of education of using concept mapping techniques as both a learning support tool and way of recording how learners assimilate new knowledge into existing knowledge structures. Evaluation techniques can be applied to concept maps produced by learners to help teachers effectively identifying learner’s misconceptions and knowledge gaps. This is a hands on workshop in getting you started with using concept mapping techniques in your classroom!

Relevant Key Stages: KS2, KS3, KS4
