  • 9. Bubble Us Brainstorming Cognitive Mapping Negotiating KnowledgeThe Unified Learning Model and General Rules of Learning (Shell et al., 2009).Rule 1. New Learning Requires Attention: Teaching and instruction are about getting learners to attendthingsRule 2. Learning Requires Repetition: Teaching needs to include retrieving and for skills, practiceRule 3. Learning Is About Connections: Effective teaching and instruction are about insuring that learnersare attending proper connectionsRule 4. Some Learning is Effortless; Some Requires Effort: Since school is about deliberately learningspecific information and skills, learning in school will be difficult (needs effort).Rule 5. Learning is Learning: At the level of neuron, human learning is human learning, the only differencecomes from previous experiences. What we already know impacts what we can learn next or more easily

  • 11. Bubble Us Brainstorming Cognitive Mapping Negotiating KnowledgeWhere to Use Cognitive Maps1. Managing messy or complex data for understanding and easy access (C Eden & Ackermann, 1998; Colin Eden, 2004; Colin Eden & Ackermann, 2004).2. Showing someones conceptualization of a domain (Colin Eden, 1992).3. Helping to make sense of the world (Kelly, 1992).4. Communicating ones own concepts and their relation (Johnson & Johnson, 2002).5. Visualizing argumentations during brainstorming (Shum, Li, Domingue, & Motta, 2003).
