PowerPoint and concept maps: a great double act

Simon, Jon


Jon Simon


This article explores how concept maps can provide a useful addition to PowerPoint slides to convey interconnections of knowledge and help students see how knowledge is often non-linear. While most accounting educators are familiar with PowerPoint, they are likely to be less familiar with concept maps and this article shows how the tool can be used by students to construct their own concept maps and how educator-constructed concept maps can be used as quizzes to encourage more student participation in class.
