2. Knowledge Mappinghttp://www.bantjes.com/project/varoom-15-knowledge 3. Generate>Capture>Share >Assess>ApplySystem maps are visual representations of your knowledge domain, where proximity and connections between entities are used to express the relationships between them. System maps can be descriptive or conceptual.Mind maps or concept maps are examples of the more conceptual system maps. So are process maps. All of these maps help to organize concepts and entities, and they are often used to communicate the key vocabulary of your domain.AIIM: http://www.aiim.org/community/blogs/expert/How-to-Determine-the-Best-Form-for-yourTaxonomy#sthash.XXEkkTiP.dpuf 4. Decoding the terms TypeDescriptionKnowledge MapsGraph representing what knowledge resides where, shows knowledge flow patterns. Directory of where to go for expertise and how assets are connected. (SDC Knowledge Toolkit)Group Concept Maps*Novak 1970. Group ideas visualized about specific topic of interest. Structured. Brainstorming, Relational. Participatory. Multiple ideas. Learning/Research in given topic/context.Concept MapsTrokim 1980s. Capture and archive expert tacit knowledge concepts graphically. Gaps easy to spot and revisit with SME.Mind MapsBuzan 1970s. Diagram used to depict facets of single topic with categories and subs radiating off of it. Individualized. 5. Concept Mapping as KM ToolTacit and Explicit Transformed in ContextAssess 6. Group Concept Mapping Can transform understanding of complex issues and processes and be visually memorable for tacit and explicit capture and application. 7. a good concept map is at once simple, but also elegantly complex with profound meanings. Concept mapping has been shown to help learners learn, researchers create new knowledge, administrators to better structure and manage organizations, writers to write, and evaluators assess learning.

ComponentsWhat Are Group Concept Maps? Graphical tools for organizing and visualizing knowledgeBased on concepts and the relationships links by connecting linesLinking words or phrases describe the relationship between two concepts2-dimensional node-links depict most important concepts and relationshipsHierarchicalContext established by Focus Question and how knowledge and learning is being appliedCross-links show relationships to concepts in different segments or domains on the map crucial to the creation, realization and application of new knowledgeCan include specific examples of events or objects that clarify of a given concepthttp://www.cmu.edu/teaching/assessment/howto/assesslearning/conceptmaps.html 9.
