Abstract

The use of active learning programs in combination with new learning and assessment methods like concept mapping could be lead to the more student oriented learning and teaching. The aim of the study is to evaluate active learning programs by using a Concept Mapping method and to make suggestion for further development of the programs. In the study 414 concept maps from 207 basic school students were collected before and after participation in on of the active learning programs (ALPs). The results showed that active learning programs helped the students to acquire new knowledge and reduce misconceptions. To increase the efficiency of the ALPs it is recommended to increase the duration and also compose one-class multi-day programs.
