Beyond Visual Learning: Active Learning

 All our courses have been transferred to Knowledge Management International University

Beyond visual learning: active learning is easily promoted with KM's methods

Be engaged and understand

The most powerful and engaging way to learn

A state-of-the-art approach to concept mapping and learning: knowledge management strategies and methods on concept maps induce deeper interaction and foster understanding. Successful e-learning (classroom or distance learning) is based on knowledge management strategies.

Go well beyond visual learning! Learning cannot depend on drawing and observation. EngagementActive learning can only be attained through active learning: interaction.

From the first steps of reading to lifelong learning support:

Knowledge Master


Active learning is at the base of critical thinking and creative thinking abilities

Interaction with Knowledge Master strategies on concept maps:

Create and/or analyze the maps, individually or in groups.

Adapt and develop other people's maps.

Real time network collaboration on maps: draw upon classmates' postings.

Navigate documents (even multimedia) and unlimited Internet links.

Search conceptually - ask the map! (and get the answers!).

Analyze subject matter in a non-threatening and risk-taking environment.

Reveal map construction. See how the map was constructed, step by step.

"What do you know about...?" Ask the knowledge base and have your answers (even with voice): a cognitive dialog. Questioning is the engine that stimulates critical thinking. The computer never gets tired.

There's always a perception gap. Perception requires input and perception can be managed through questions. That's one of the roles of our automatic questioning approach. Perception requires input.

PBL (Project Based Learning and Problem Based Learning) and IL (Inquiry Learning) are outstanding examples of active learning.

Gain instantaneous access to the most relevant concepts, a selective procedure proposed by Knowledge Master to reduce time and effort. A productivity tool.

Search the map (or all maps at once) to locate important terms. See the dynamic index to know contents.

Animate the map with paths and voice, real thinking paths.

Analyze and search in descriptions, texts and multimedia.

Unleash the computer's potential as a knowledge tool.

In active learning the learning activity is student centered

The tangible effects of active learning with Knowledge Master:

Higher class memory training.

More attention span and focus.

Increase motivation and perception.

There's no difference between average, gifted or impaired students. The methods are universal. An inclusive school integration technology.

Takes advantage of the human mental natural "endowment".

Longer lasting learning. The students enjoy this interaction.

Improvement in working memory management.

Active learning consents learning new information through involvement and participation rather than memorization besides visualization.

When knowledge can be personalized, students acquire a greater understanding of every new information and ability, much more than when learning from non personalized, abstract or generalized information.

Learning and student participation is stimulated by using automatic analysis functions. Just a click and start conversation.

Promoting discussion and brainstorming is at the same time a tool and an important outcome of active learning.

KM's interactive conversational approach makes of it a useful tool for cognitive therapy in some impairments or diseases.
