Ontology-supported Scaffolding of Concept Maps

Paper type: 


Concept maps are often used in inquiry learning as tools for conceptual modelling, but also as a means to externalise and diagnose conceptual understanding. The latter use is closely related to intelligent feedback and scaffolding. Previous approaches used an expert concept map as a reference to generate intelligent feedback. This paper describes an approach that takes a domain ontology as its only input.
