Teach better and improve students' results
Use ContextMinds in education to explicitly show the relationships between the concepts you teach, organize the course topics and test the students. Thanks to automatic concept and relationship suggestions, you can quickly create a concept map showing an overview of the whole chapter on one page.
By presenting the information to students as a concept map, you allow them to learn meaningfully.
That means the students integrate the new concepts with those they already know instead of memorizing disconnected facts.
Students connect the new concepts with relationships to known concepts because they can explicitly see them in the concept map.
into the lecture
You can start the lecture with a half-empty map and add new concepts as you explain them throughout the lecture.
Or even better, you can ask students to propose what concepts to add and how to link them with relationships.
Create blind maps and ask students to complete them on their own.
Use concept maps to design the course, organize and order the topics and subtopics.
Create an overview of all courses and see how they are interconnected and where the topics overlap.
Adapt the lectures in different courses to allow students to interconnect the overlapping knowledge.
to mitigate ADHD
Keep students' attention by engaging them into concept mapping.
Let us teach you how to teach with concept maps
We know it's not easy to start using concept maps. We want to help you with that. We offer tutorials, free webinars, a concept mapping guide and instructional videos.
