A poster presentation on “Understanding Science Through Knowledge Organizers: An Introduction”. The paper (authored by Meena Kharatmal and Nagarjuna G.) is part of our research work in the area of knowledge representation.
Abstract. The paper introduces an operationizable framework for understanding knowledge using knowledge representation (KR) methodology. We start with organizing concepts based on their cognitive function, followed by assigning valid and authentic semantic relations to the concepts. We propose that in science education, students can understand better if they organize their knowledge using the KR principles. The process, we claim, can help them to align their conceptual framework with that of experts’ conceptual framework which we assume is the goal of science education.
