dc.description.abstract We propose a new educational framework for educational exploration basedon conceptual networks generated and explored by students supplied with Wikipedialinkage. In the first experimental setup we had a group of students (n=103) to createhigh-frequency lists of words and links between words, and in the second experimentalsetup we had another group of students (n=49) to explore a subsection of hyperlinknetwork of the Wikipedia corresponding to conceptual networks generated by students inthe first experimental setup. We report findings based on comparison of word lists andconceptual networks generated by students, vocabulary ranking of British NationalCorpus, hyperlink network structure of the Wikipedia and exploration paths of studentsin the hyperlink network of the Wikipedia. After traversing 20 hyperlink steps eachstudent could recall on average about 33,1 percent of unique shown concepts and onaverage 64,8 percent of unique selected concepts which seems to indicate thatexploration in hyperlink network can support adoption of new knowledge. en
