This work describes how a documentary video, about a scientific experience in cooperative learning, was made coordinating different work phases across conceptual maps creation and sharing among the project’s stakeholders.
The video illustrates how to explain the fluids pressure concept to a 5th elementary class presenting a scientific experiment and using the cooperative learning method. The maps’ graphic simplicity and conceptual clarity encouraged knowledge exchanges
among the working teams overstepping geographical distances to produce a video to train teachers in cooperative learning method. The ideas are shown and connected to each other by a tool that is immediately readable and easy to improve.
In conclusion we can say that conceptual maps are a valid and low cost tool for knowledge sharing, shots arranging and video producing.
