Computers, Thinking and Learning: Inspiring Students with Technology

Computers, Thinking and Learning provides teachers with successful strategies for implementing the full potential of ICT in middle and upper school humanities classrooms. It is a practical and innovative resource that has the authentic voice of a teacher and is an inspirational guide for busy teachers across a range of subjects.

Each chapter is divided into three parts: the learning and thinking context, classroom strategies, and wider applications and suggested activities.

Chapter topics encourage greater student involvement in the deeper and more significant processes of thinking and learning:

  • Concept Mapping: ICT as a thinking and learning tool
  • Oral language: avoiding death by PowerPoint
  • On Line Discussion: a challenge for thinking skills
  • Hypertext: a writing tool for lateral thinking
  • Visual literacies: moving on from text-based learning
  • Responding to student work: can computers help?
