This study presents an integrated concept mapping system to aid students in promoting their self-awareness in conceptual structure. The same or similar concepts and propositions are accommodated in the integrated concept map. Group members’ thoughts in concept maps can be retained with the representation of integrated concept map, which may be viewed as a group product. Students can use integrated concept map as a meta-cognitive tool for introspecting students’ own and observing others’ concept maps; besides, integrated concept map can also facilitate the comparisons between concept maps. By using integrated concept mapping system, students can self-examine their own concept maps and compare with others’ concept maps in order to self-aware their insufficiencies in knowledge structures, and further this activity can promote their level of self-awareness. The level of self-awareness of thirty-two Taiwanese college students was found promoted after they viewed integrated concept maps. Students made some conceptual changes and improvements in concept maps during the experiment. Significant but low positive correlation between the level of self-awareness in conceptual structure and the improvements on concept map structure was found. Students’ perceptions about using this system were positive, and they felt that the differences or insufficiencies of their concept maps are easily found by means of this system.
