Abstract

The purpose of this study is to use multiple data sources, both objective and subjective, to capture students' thinking process as they were engaged in problem-solving process, examine the cognitive tool use patterns, and understand what tools were used and why they were used. Our intention is provide some empirical evidence to support the theoretical notion that technology-based cognitive tools play an important role in assisting students' problem-solving.
