This presentation includes several useful examples Concept Maps that demonstrate how the tool can lead to deeper levels of processing by students. Also includes an overview of author's research of how Concept Maps enhanced student performance (especially among students with lower achievement scores) along anecdotal suggestions for how to introduce Concept Maps into a course through scaffolding techniques. Also explores strategies for how Concept Maps can be used to assess student learning and misconceptions. It is not immediately clear what the memory/application tasks toward the end of the presentation related to Concept Maps. Overall this is a very useful introduction into the use of concept maps.

Technical Remarks:

Nice presentation with dual screens with the author and the PowerPoint. I also appreciate the author's use of a Tablet PC!
Time spent reviewing site: 50 minutes.
