Abstract

This study presented a votable concept mapping approach to promoting students' attentional behavior based on the evidence of mining sequential behavioral patterns. Twenty-nine students from an Educational Research Methodology course were recruited as participants. In the first week, a group-polling method was introduced in class; in the second week, participants were asked to draw concept maps using pen and paper (PnP concept mapping); and in the third week, the polling system and concept maps were integrated (votable concept mapping) and applied. The results showed that the votable concept mapping method was effective to stimulating students' attention during class. It was therefore suggested that teachers adopt methods integrating concept maps and polling tools to stimulate students' attention and thereby promote a positive cycle of attentional behavior in the classroom.
