In their work, scientists regularly need to both process new information about complex phenomena and convey such knowledge to individuals unfamiliar with the subject matter (e.g. students, researchers from other fields). Often, we use words to describe the related concepts to ourselves and others.
When using text and speech, however, we are severely limited in representing our phenomena. To describe scientific concepts a large number words is usually needed, and such narrative descriptions often are ambiguous too. As a consequence, word-based accounts can easily become overly complicated and confusing, thus impairing understanding and learning of novel subjects.
We now know, however, that knowledge can be more effectively represented by including visual representations. Concept Maps, related to but different from Mind Maps (!), are a type of visualizing knowledge, one that focuses on the relations within and between concepts. Given that this form of describing phenomena also corresponds much more to the way knowledge is actually stored in our minds, the use of Concept Maps has been found to accelerate individuals’ understanding and learning of complex subjects.
