Full Description
Knowledge maps are ideal tools for capturing, organizing and extracting meaning from many different sources. They provide powerful graphic tools for classifying, representing and communicating all kinds of information. This book discusses significant new research and explains its underlying principles in terms of Knowledge Cartography. It offers a rich variety of conceptual frameworks, mapping techniques and case studies. Readers are shown how to apply knowledge maps in different teaching, learning and knowledge management contexts. Discussions include: What theories help us to understand knowledge maps in learning? What are the best methodologies and techniques for creating knowledge maps? What best practices exist in the use of mapping for learning? What are the difficulties and challenges of using knowledge cartography in learning? Presenting conceptual foundations and orientation to the different approaches with illustrated practical methods and case studies, this book provides invaluable insight for researchers and graduates.
