Concept maps are visual information representations. Examples include charts, graphic organizers, tables, flowcharts, Venn Diagrams, timelines, and T-charts. Concept maps are especially beneficial for students who learn visually but can benefit any learner. Concept maps are an effective study strategy because they help you see the big picture. Beginning with higher-level concepts allows you to chunk information based on meaningful connections. Knowing the big picture, in other words, makes details more significant and easier to remember. Concept maps are especially useful in classes or content with visual elements or when it is essential to see and understand relationships between different things. They can also be used to compare and contrast information.
