The focus of this study is to apply the concept mapping method to innovate curriculum design. The study purpose is to explore how to use the teaching method of concept mapping to help learners build knowledge scaffolding, so that learners can organize scattered knowledge and construct meaningful knowledge through concept mapping. In other words, it helps learners to present abstract concepts in a concrete way, and to clarify the relationship between concepts and facts, and to connect new information and prior knowledge in order to make meaningful learning. Of course, this study also analyzes the advantages and disadvantages of concept mapping and its limitations. Although it has some disadvantages, such as time-consuming, more subjective, as well as providing no explanation for the concept itself, and so on, the teaching method of concept mapping has more advantages than disadvantages. It visualizes important facts, concepts and relationships. It not only contributes to the construction and memory of knowledge, the communication and negotiation of meaning, the evaluation and improvement of learning results, but also contributes to the organization of information and the innovation of ideas. It is still regarded as a powerful teaching tool.
