 +====== Theory Underlying Concept Maps ======
 +
 +Concept maps illustrate a topic that is guided by a focus question. It is generally best practice to brainstorm the relevant concepts first to create a list.
 +
 +The benefit of concept maps are that they support learning through augmentation into existing knowledge and frameworks, and therefore build stronger memories than rote learning.
 +
 +From there, they can be formed into a map using links with effective descriptors. Cross links between concepts often represent the most creative thinking.
 +
 +Concept maps are depicted hierarchically,​ with general statements at the top, with specificity growing downwards.
 +
 +===== Different to Mindmaps =====
 +
 +Mindmaps commence at a central point and can diverge wildly through brainstorming. They are not designed to answer a focus question.
