A concept map (or a network of some linguistic expressions) is a human-level representation of an issue. Concept-map-based educational activity ensures meaningful learning, and helps avoid, at the same time, rote learning. It also helps prepare contents for e-learning, as well as, measuring the learning outcomes at the course, program, and (even) institutional levels. Therefore, concept maps have extensively been used in schools, colleges, universities, and professional education. The objective of this Special Issue is to provide an outlet for the finding of our colleagues who are active in concept-map-based educational activities. In particular, this issue solicits manuscripts on (but not limited to) the following topics:
- Theoretical foundations of concept mapping
- Application of concept mapping in preparing e-learning contents
- Application of concept mapping in school education
- Application of concept mapping in higher education
- Application of concept mapping in professional education
- Concept mapping in active learning
- Concept mapping in problem-based learning
- Concept mapping in project-based learning
- Concept mapping in engineering education
- ICT-based concept mapping
- Concept-map-based distance learning
