10 Ways To Support Learning Styles With Concept Mapping

10 Ways To Support Learning Styles With Concept Mapping | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"Engaging your mind takes some effort to identify what you care for and what is the best way to attain what you care for. Do you want students to become better learners? Help them discover what they care for by allowing them to identify and use their own learning style."

Concept maps are a great tool for many learners...and this post provides ten ways you might consider using them in your classroom. The concept maps are divided into three categories: Learn by Seeing, Learn by Doing, and Learn by Hearing. In many cases there is a concept map that shows off the style.

There are many free tools to help create concept maps. A quick look on concept maps in this Scoop.it will provide quite a few results.

It seems the more people deny there are learning styles the more information surfaces explaining them.

Massabesic Middle School, Waterboro

"For so many years, students would receive grades and not know where they came from, what assignments led up to them, how they would be assessed. Now they're involved in not only creating the units and deciding how they will assess themselves, but also how they will assess each other."

 

Ms. Downing-Ford:

 

So when a student walks into my classroom, I think what their struck with is that I'm not the one that's talking the most in the classroom. There's a lot of voice and choice in the classroom.

 

For so many years, they would receive grades and not know where they came from, what assignments led up to them, how they would be assessed. Now they're involved in not only creating the units and deciding how they will assess themselves, but also how they will self-assess their work and assess each other.

Rosemary Tyrrell's insight:

Worth a watch. I'm struck with the fact that these students are using education jargon, like: "unpacking the standards." Not sure how I feel about that.

At Massabesic Middle School, learners are unpacking the standards and are given "voice and choice" in how they learn and how they will express what they know and understand.  This is an excellent example of what student-centered learning is and how teachers and learners roles change. Above all, the ownership to learning takes place where the learners are driving their own learning.

 

A thank you to the Maine DOE and Ms. Downing-Ford in sharing this video and illustrating the power behind student-centered learning!
