Abstract

Concept maps are used by educators all over the world as a learning tool. In addition to help learn subject-matter content, concept mapping is considered to develop higher-order thinking skills. However, concept mapping is used most commonly as an assessment tool, and set within an activity that usually does not involve learning. Depending on how instructors use concept mapping with their students, they can facilitate increased learning of both subject-matter content and higher-order thinking skills, or it can be an activity with little impact in the students’ learning. In this paper we discuss under what conditions concept mapping can lead to learning, and what it takes for the students to get there.
