COURSE OVERWIEW

Maps is an innovative teaching method that still finds a lot of resistance today. However, concept and mental maps are powerful tools for the visualization and organization of knowledge, widely used to support planning, organization, communication, training, problem solving activities, in many activities, in large organizations and in the business environment.

The researchers who contributed to the theoretical development of concept maps were J.D. Novak and T. Buzan.

In the educational field, teacher training on concept maps course presents some perplexities, especially in the old teachings methods: today, however, we know that this is an excellent technique for promoting student training. Traditional techniques are based, as a matter of fact, on a mainly mechanical learning made of transmission and memorization of notions; this can lead students to a passive attitude towards study, to a loss of input that can also degenerate into school difficulties or even a subsequent drop out of school.

Learning through concept maps, on the other hand, bases teaching on formulas that make students an active part of the process.
