Os mapas de conceitos são sempre coisas interessantes de se fazer 🙂

Primeiro temos que perceber bem o que queremos fazer e de seguida a construção!

Assim comecei por fazer algumas pesquisas, tanto a nível de literatura como de software (open source).

Duas referências que me parecem apropriadas:

” The Theory Underlying Concept Maps and How to Construct and Use Them” (

o software: CMAP ( não é open source mas é free 🙂 ou então um outro online text2 mapmind (

e ainda encontrei uma wiki com referencias sobre este tema e com links para outras aplicações (

“the prejudice of training is always a certain ‘trained incapacity’: the more we know about how to do something, the harder it is to learn how to do it differently” (Kaplan, 1964, p.31, apud Rogers, 2003, p.106)

“Preservice teachers’ acceptance of ICT integration in the classroom: applying the UTAUT model ”
In this study, the researchers explore the factors that influence preservice teachers’ acceptance of information and communication technology (ICT) integration in the classroom. The Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) was developed by Venkatesh et al. [MIS Quarterly, 27(3), 425-478] in 2003 and shown to outperform eight preceding models, explaining 70% of the variance in user intentions. The role of the UTAUT variables (performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence, and facilitating conditions) are examined and the resulting regression model accounts for 27% of the variance in user intentions with effort expectancy surfacing as the only significant predictor of behavior intention. Results and recommendations for future research in the application of UTAUT are discussed.
