Concept maps can be used for demonstrating and communicating ideas in brainstorming or presentation activities. Students can use concept maps to organize their understanding of a subject matter. Teachers can use concept maps to present learning content and diagnose learners’ understanding. Concept maps can also be used for generating ideas when different concepts are linked together. An obvious advantage of concept maps is that the learner can sharpen their thinking and reflect concepts and their relationships, which can help foster the development of life-long learning skills and critical thinking skills (Ng and Hanewald 2010). Previous studies also reported that concept maps had a positive effect on knowledge gains and attitude (Horton et al. 1993). In recent years, concept maps have been widely used in different fields for representing and visualizing knowledge. Nesbit and Adesope (2006) found that use of concept maps has grown rapidly as a tool for supporting teaching and learning. They also reported that the use of concept maps produced increased retention and transfer of knowledge as well as positive attitudes toward learning when compared with control conditions. Bahr and Dansereau (2001) revealed that the use of a concept map can lower anxiety and frustration while increasing motivation.
