Abstract

This study investigates the effect of hypermedia-hypertext and paper-pencil type concept maps created in the Basic Chemistry I course for the subject of atom and bonding on students' meaningful learning. The research was conducted with a total of 30 students enrolled in Basic Chemistry I at Hacettepe University, Faculty of Education. An atom-bonding knowledge test and concept maps were used as data collection tools in this study. It was established that concept maps created using the hypermedia-hypertext technique contribute to the students' meaningful learning. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved
