  • 사용자 중심의 메뉴 기반 인터페이스를 설계하기 위해서는 인간의 지식 구조를 이해하는 것이 중요하다. 인간의 지식 구조를 이해하게 되면, 인터페이스를 통해서 전달된 자극들이 만들어낸 개념들이 어떠한 관계를 가지고 정신 모형(mental model)을 형성하고 있는지 알 수 있다. 인간의 지식 구조는 MDS (Multidimensional Scaling)과 Trajectory Mapping을 이용하여 Visual Concept Map 으로 나타낼 수 있고, 이것을 바탕으로 인간의 지식구조를 시각적으로 이해할 수 있다. MDS 는 인간의 머릿속에 자리잡고 있는 개념들의 상대적 위치를 알려주고, Trajectory Mapping 은 개념들 간의 연결 상태를 보여준다. 즉, Trajectory Mapping 을 통하여 개념들 간악 인지적 정보를 알 수 있다. 본 연구에서는 MDS 와 Trajectory Mapping 을 이용하여 핸드폰 메뉴로부터 전달 받은 시각적 자극들에 악해 형성된 개념들에 대한 인간의 지식 구조를 Visual Concept Map 으로 시각화하였다. 그리고 이렇게 시각화된 지식 구조를 바탕으로 메뉴 구조를 개발하였다. 본 연구 결과, MDS 와 Trajectory Mapping 을 이용한 인간의 지식 구조의 시각화는 사용자 중심의 메뉴 기반 인터페이스를 설계하는데 유용하게 쓰일 수 있을 것으로 보인다.

  • This paper describes concept mapping techniques for eliciting and representing knowledge. Concept mapping techniques range from very informal to very formal. Informal concept mapping techniques are usually very easy to use and understand for humans, but not for computers. Formal concept mapping techniques are computational, but humans usually find them hard to understand and use. A knowledge acquisition and representation tools which handle both kinds, and the transition from informal to formal, would be very useful. It is proposed that concept maps be regarded as basic components of any knowledge-based system, complementing text and image with formal and informl active diagrams.

  • Although many studies have investigated the effectiveness of concept mapping and the learning cycle, in Korea none have explored the effectiveness of concept mapping and the learning cycle combined. This study explored the effectiveness of concept mapping, the learning cycle, and a combination of concept mapping/learning cycle(CL) in high school biology class. Students' science achievement, the science related attitudes and scientific inquiry ability was measured. The results indicated that concept mapping, the learning cycle, and CL treatment were significantly different from the traditional one in science achievement(p< .05). However, the three treatments were not significantly different from each other. No significant difference exists among different learnings in high and average-ability students. But, concept mapping was the most effective in low-ability students. For the students' scientific inquiry ability, CL and learning cycle were more effective than concept mapping and traditional learning. No significant difference exists among different learnings in high-ability students. CL and learning cycle were more effective than concept mapping and traditional learning in average and low-ability students. For the students' science related attitudes, concept mapping, the learning cycle, and CL were more effective than the traditional learning. But, there was no significant difference among these three groups.

  • The purpose of this study is to verify the applicability of concept mapping in the process of planning social welfare program based on community network. Concept mapping is a kind of decision-making method that structuralized complex ideas and presented visually. Already, concept mapping is widely utilized in counseling, nursing and public health area to plan and evaluation their program and service. For recent, effectiveness of concept mapping has been reported. Concept mapping is a effective decision-making method that they recognize outcome gap between service provider and client, reach the outcome's consensus in counseling and nursing, medical area. In this study, we conceptualized 3rd year outcomes of Community Impact Project that was supported from Busan Chest using concept mapping. This CI project intervenes children and youth who lives in Buk-gu, Busan. Concept mapping has six stages-preparation, collecting ideas, structuring statements, representing statement, interpreting the results of the analysis, applying the results. We followed these steps. The participants were working at social welfare organizations, total 11 persons. We obtained 60 statements and analyzed using multidimensional scaling. we collected 5 clusters, cluster 1 'awareness and attitude change of children and youth', cluster 2 'social system change of children and youth', cluster 3 'friendly community formation', cluster 4 'community people change', cluster 5 'service provider change'. As a result, among total 5 clusters formed, 'awareness and attitude change of children and youth' came to the strongest outcomes. When concept mapping was applied to the program planning, the consensus of the opinion came easily in the decision-making process, and the participants were empowered. In addition, clear conceptualization on each element of the program planning was made.

  • The purpose of this study is to verify the applicability of concept mapping in the process of planning of network outcomes in social welfare. Planning and evaluation of network outcomes involve many stakeholders. Recognizing the value and range of individuals' perspectives in the creation of a common framework is one of the biggest methodological challenges for planning of network outcomes. Concept mapping is a kind of methodology that creates a stakeholder-authored visual geography of ideas from a group. It uses both a quantitative and qualitative approach, including brainstorming, structuring the statement, specific analysis and data interpretation methods to produce maps that can then be used to guide planning and evaluation efforts on the issues that matter to the group. 13 network managers who work in the social welfare centers in Busan are core participants. The 50 statements on network outcomes from brainstorming session fell into six distinct clusters. After the interpretation session these clusters were rated according to the seven rating scales. This paper explores applicability of concept mapping in the process of planning of network outcomes in social welfare. Concept mapping helps stakeholders with different value and ideas about network outcomes to consensus on common conceptual framework. In addition, a multidimensional conceptualization of network outcomes was made. It will assist in designing future outcomes evaluation and guide the evaluators through a selection of key activities and outcomes.
