Using Active

Utilize Graphic Organizers and Mapping
Graphic Organizers
Graphic Organizers help students to understand the
relationships between two or more items. They allow
the student to problem solve and to create a map for
designing products.
Research on Graphic
According to Robert Marzano, the use of
graphic organizers will greatly improve a
student’s understanding of the concept.
(Marzano, 2001)
Marzano, also states, that this is one of the
most underused strategies in learning.
He and his colleagues found that there is an
average percentile gain of 27.

Concept Mapping
in More Detail.
According to http://users.edte.utw , “concept mapping is a
technique for representing knowledge in graphs.
Knowledge graphs are networks of concepts. Networks
consist of nodes (points/vertices) and links (arcs/edges).
Nodes represent concepts and links represent the relations
between concepts.”
Purpose of
Concept Mapping
Concept Mapping is often completed for:
•Generating Ideas
•Designing Complex Structures
•Communicating Complex Ideas
•Combining new and old knowledge
•Assessing understanding

Examples of Concept
Problem/Solution Map
Process Development Map
Descriptive Concept Map
Research Cycle Concept Map
Spider Concept Map
Flowchart Concept Map
Systems Concept Map

My conclusion is that graphic organizers and
concept maps are easily accessible to online
learners. If this is the case and it reportedly
will help students achieve more success,
teachers must use graphic organizers to
create active learning.
