Coming To Know: The Role of the Concept Map--Mirror, Assistant, Master?
McAleese, Ray
This paper explains the process of creating and managing concept maps, using reflection as a focus for its argument. Section 1, What is a Concept Map?, highlights the background and definition of concept mapping, explains how maps signify virtual conceptual structures, looks at structural knowledge, provides an example of a concept map, and discusses associationism. Section 2, Self-Regulation, focuses on self-regulation, which makes individuals goal directed and helps in implementing intentionality. It also discusses self-confrontation, which is the external juxtaposition of self-concept, feelings, or beliefs with some external physical manifestations of those feelings and beliefs. Section 3, Off-Loading, explains that off-loading occurs because of the limited capacity of working memory registers. Section 4, The Process of Concept Mapping, looks at phases in the construction of a concept map. Section 5, Mirror, Assistant or Master?, explains that this paper provided a tentative framework for the process involved in creating and maintaining concept maps, and it discusses the implications for learning and instructional design.
