Abstract
We propose a new educational framework,ConceptMapWiki, that is a wiki representing pedagogicalknowledge with a collection of concept maps which iscollaboratively created, edited and browsed. The learners andeducators provide complementing contribution to evolvingshared knowledge structures that are stored in a relationaldatabase forming together inter-connected overlappingontologies. Every contribution is stored supplied with timestamps and a user profile enabling to analyze maturing ofknowledge according to various learner-driven criteria.Pedagogically motivated learning paths can be collaborativelydefined and evaluated, and educational games can beincorporated based on browsing and editing concept maps.The proposed framework is believed to be the first wikiarchitecture of it's kind, designed for personalized learningwith an evolving knowledge repository relying on adaptivevisual representations and sound pedagogical motivation.Initial experiments with a functional online prototype indicatepromising educational gain and suggest further research.
