The value of concept mapping
- Main concepts appear at the top of the map and more specific concepts appear lower down,
- Each concept appears only once on the map,
- Links have arrow heads to show the direction in which concepts should be read,
- Links are given meaning by words or phrases
- There can be any number of links going to or coming from a concept box.
- The overall layout is clear and uncluttered
