Computers as Mindtools for Engaging Learners in Critical Thinking
TLRPTIL Volume 43, Number 2, ISSN 8756-3894
Mindtools are computer applications that, when used by learners to represent what they know, engage them in critical thinking. This article discusses computers as semantic organization (databases and semantic networking), dynamic modeling (spreadsheets, expert systems, systems modeling, microworlds), information interpretation, knowledge construction, hypermedia, and conversation tools and presents rationales for using technology as Mindtools.
