Abstract

In this study, we have developed a new concept mapping software with search function. This function supports learners’ reflection on their thinking process through comparing their thinking process with other learners’ thinking process. We conducted an experimental evaluation to examine how this function supports learners to find other learners who have different thinking process from their own process. The results of “measurements of time to find the concept maps,” “judging correct or incorrect in finding the concept maps” and “questionnaire-based survey” show that this function enables learners to find other learners’ concept maps that have different thinking processes from their own thinking process.
