Abstract

Abstract: We propose a new educational framework for educational exploration based on conceptual networks generated and explored by students supplied with Wikipedia linkage. In the first experimental setups we had a group of students (n=103) to create high-frequency lists of word and links between words, and in the second experimental setup we had another group of students (n=49) to explore a subsection of hyperlink network of the Wikipedia corresponding to conceptual networks generated by students in the first experimental setup. We report findings based on comparison of word lists and conceptual networks generated by students, vocabulary ranking of British National Corpus, hyperlink network structure of the Wikipedia and exploration paths of students in the hyperlink network of the Wikipedia.
