Collaborative Concept Mapping

Why:
Collaborative concept mapping is a great way for students to step away from their individual perspectives. A concept map can reinforce concepts learned out of class and build connections between various topics.

How:
Students map out how concepts, ideas or theories are thematically related in a visual manner. Any gaps can be useful inspiration for discussions either on a group of class level. Groups can do this to review previous work, or it can help them map ideas for projects and assignments.
