Concept Map


Definition: a Concept Map is a conceptual diagram that graphically depicts suggested relationships between concepts. They may be used by teachers, instructional designers, engineers, technical writers, and others to organize, structure and communicate knowledge.

A concept map typically represents ideas and information as boxes or circles, which it connects with labeled arrows, often in a downward-branching hierarchical structure but also in free-form maps. The relationship between concepts have to be articulated in linking phrases such as "causes", "requires", "such as" or "contributes to".

The technique for visualizing these relationships is called concept mapping
