Per schema si intende una rappresentazione semplificata delle parti essenziali di un evento o di un testo; l’aggettivo “schematico”  è sinonimo di essenziale, sintetico.

Lo schema è un’idea generale, una sintesi ristretta di un progetto, di un testo, di un discorso e può essere costituito da un solo concetto che si dirama in due direzioni come, ad esempio, quando si deve prendere una decisione e si valutano i pro ed i contro.

Gli schemi non solo fungono da contenitori di informazioni ma anche da organizzatori in quanto le organizzano in gerarchie concettuali (es. principio-applicazione) e le contengono entro categorie che funzionano come “scaffali” di un archivio permettendo di organizzare le informazioni in sistemi di conoscenze specifiche acquisite, man mano, tramite l’esperienza personale. Essi devono essere considerati come uno strumento fondamentale per uno studio efficace che favorisca l’apprendimento sostenendo un corollario di informazioni anche complesse.

E’ utile schematizzare in tre diversi momenti dello studio: all’inizio per riattivare le preconoscenze, durante per organizzare le nuove informazioni in arrivo, alla fine per rielaborare le informazioni.

Gli schemi concettuali possono essere di vari tipi ma elencherò solo i principali:

  • schema a corolla: c’è un nucleo centrale con il titolo o l’idea principale e da concetti secondari che, appunto, fanno da corollario all’argomento principale (Fig.1);
  • schema a croce: rimane il concetto di nucleo centrale al centro del foglio e si fanno partire, da questo, quattro direzioni a formare una croce (Fig.2);
  • schema ad albero: serve a visualizzare una gerarchia concettuale e se ne possono creare di diversi tipi (Fig.3)

  1. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  2. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your site.

    You have some really good posts and I think I would be a good asset.
    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write
    some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please send me an email if interested. Many thanks!

  3. Wonderful article! This is the type of info that are meant to
    be shared across the net. Disgrace on the search engines for no longer positioning this
    put up upper! Come on over and talk over with my website
    . Thank you =)

  4. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but
    I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m
    not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?


  5. I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps
    everyone else encountering issues with your site.

    It appears as if some of the written text on your
    content are running off the screen. Can someone else please
    comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This may be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

  6. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but
    instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic
    read. I’ll certainly be back.

  7. I don’t even know how I stopped up right here,
    however I assumed this put up used to be great. I do not
    realize who you’re but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger
    in the event you aren’t already. Cheers!

  8. Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I’ve really enjoyed surfing around your blog posts.

    After all I’ll be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again soon!

  9. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon every day.
    It will always be useful to read content from other writers and practice something from other
