Concept Mapping

Concept mapping is a graphical representation of the linkages between several concepts. It converts abstract knowledge and understanding into tangibly visible connections within and between different information.  This allows the learner to make new connections that they may not have made without the visual aid. Concept mapping enhances teaching and learning in an active way.
