Abstract

Novakian type of concept mapping is studied as an innovation adapting Rogers’ theory of communication and diffusion of innovations. The main data and conclusions are based on documents, memories and notes from Finland, but also from Sweden, Estonia and Russia 1984 – 2008. One of the main innovative uses of concept mapping in Finland has been its use and development as research method and quality tool. Concept mapping is compared to other graphic representation tools, in particular mind mapping and clustering. In the article the main features about history of concept mapping in Finland, Sweden, Estonia and Russia 1984 – 2008 is presented based on documents. Based on scattered evidence mind mapping is more spread and used than concept mapping in all these countries. In Finland concept mapping has stronger position than in Sweden, Estonia and Russia. More research is needed to reveal history and development of Novakian type of concept mapping both regionally and globally.
