 A one-day Professional Learning Workshop for Middle and High school Teachers.

 

A professional training for using Concept Mapping as a tool for meaningful learning and helping students learn how to learn.

 

 A unique opportunity to meet Professor Joseph Novak of Cornell University- the creator of Concept Maps and the author of the theory of Meaningful Learning - and his followers who are using Concept Maps in everyday classroom environment (as well as gain some re-certification hours). Please join us this summer at Boston University on August 23d.

 

  Research proves that using Concept Maps facilitates critical thinking, deepens understanding and assists learners in developing a self appraisal of their own thinking process.

 

  The workshop will be lead by Prof. Novak and James Gorman (an experienced teacher and one of many followers of Professor Novak), and will provide participants with a hands-on experience of using Concept Maps and Concept Mapping Tool.

 

  The ultimate goal of this workshop is to build a community of educators who are actively using concept maps and sharing their experiences with each other.
