SANCHEZ-QUEVEDO, María del Carmen et al. Concept maps as a polyvalent educational tool for health sciences: Their application to histology. Educ. méd. [online]. 2006, vol.9, n.2, pp.51-58. ISSN 1575-1813.
This article analyzes the concept map as a tool for educational strategy applied to health sciences, particularly in the area of histology. After considering the elements that make up these maps, the different types of concept maps and the epistemological basis of maps as instruments to enhance significant learning, the article examines how maps can be used for curriculum development, evaluation, pedagogic design by teachers, and self-learning by students within the context of the Bologna process. UIT reference to histology, we analyze how different types of maps are used to define and rank concepts, examine the relationship between disciplines and to understand the new paradigm of histology related to tissue engineering.
