The concept maps built and shared in the internet through the CmapTools resources were used in this study to follow and to analyze the processes of concept construction in the school learning situations. The samples, from a Brazilian public school, built maps in the context of learning projects developed in a digital environment. Jean Piaget’s Genetic Psychology and Epistemology, which supports the project method in use in the net environment, was chosen as a methodological-theoretical alternative to Joseph Novak’s proposal that uses David Ausubel’s Meaningful Learning. Moreover, we made use of Jean-Blaise Grize’s Natural Logic to build the data analyses in natural language, comparing them with the evolution and modifications of the linking phrases in the concept maps.
