Abstract

This book introduces learners to the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and sustainable development through the innovative use of mapping apps. Aimed at empowering learners of all ages and disciplines, it offers a comprehensive collection of mapping techniques and technologies, including mind maps, concept maps, and dialogue maps among others. These artefacts are brought to life through practical applications by educators, researchers, and students, supporting the open schooling movement's drive for diverse and interactive learning methods.

At the heart of the book is the CARE-KNOW-DO framework, encouraging young people to actively engage with sustainability challenges through exploration, understanding, and action. It serves as a valuable resource for researchers to identify trends, connect information, and craft impactful narratives with AI support. Additionally, the book provides guidance on leveraging knowledge maps for decision-making and inspiring future generations, complemented by case studies, teaching strategies, and learning outcomes based on extensive literature and ethical considerations.

This open-access book, stemming from the author's various research projects funded by the European Union, seeks to transform educational approaches in research, teaching, and learning by foregrounding knowledge mapping as a key tool for creating sustainable futures.
