Semantic networks

Semantic Networks

Concept Maps as Mindtools


What are semantic networks

What are Semantic Networks?

  • Spatial Representations of Concepts

  • Intended to represent the knowledge structures that humans store

  • Consisting of nodes representing concepts and labeled lines representing relationships among them


Why create semantic networks

Why create Semantic Networks?

  • Engage learners in critical thinking

  • Allow learners to ORGANIZE ideas

  • They work as visual tools – key for our students!

  • Allow learner to constantly elaborate and refine concepts


How are semantic networks used as mindtools

How Are Semantic Networks Used as Mindtools?

  • Declarative Knowledge – objects, events, ideas that we know

  • Procedural Knowledge – how to use this information to solve problems

  • Structural Knowledge – understanding how these two things are interrelated and integrated


How can they be used

How Can They Be Used?

  • Study Guides

  • Knowledge Integration Tools

  • Planning Tools


Study guides

Study Guides

  • Highlighting and Re-Reading Does Not Work!

  • Allows them to Engage With the Ideas Rather Than Try to Memorize

  • Students Must Come Up With Nets on Their Own to be Effective


Knowledge integration tool

Knowledge Integration Tool

  • Acts as Self-Assessment Tool

  • Works Towards Higher-Order Thinking

  • Allow Students to Focus on Issue at Hand


Planning tool

Planning Tool

  • Useful for Both Teachers and Students

  • Useful for Organizing Essay Writing

  • Great for Studying for Test

  • Can Work for Group Projects Within the Classroom

  • Can Help Teachers Plan Lessons, Units, and Assessements


Working on construction of nets

Working on Construction of Nets

  • Make a plan – what is your goal for the net?

  • Identify important concepts – focus on words, phrases and key ideas

  • Create, Define, and Elaborate Nodes – defining the relationship between ideas

  • Continue to Expand the Net

  • Student Reflection


What makes a good net

What Makes A Good Net?

  • Number of nodes indicates breadth of net

  • Are the relationships formed clear and descriptive?

  • How accurate is the information?
