Abstract

This paper explores how the use of concept mapping, with and without technology support, assists students in learning complex concepts to which they may have had limited previous exposure. Undergraduate preservice teachers were engaged in a group-based concept mapping activity wherein they created three concept maps over the course of several weeks in a large lecture class. Students were randomly assigned to groups, and groups were randomly assigned to treatment conditions: concept mapping on paper versus concept mapping using an iPad app. Concept maps were scores for complexity and accuracy and scores were compared across time and between conditions. Concept map score were also correlated with student performance on related test items. The application of concept mapping and iPads in collaborative group work for undergraduate preservice teachers will be discussed.
