This book introduces the concept of a hypothetical type of knowledge construction -- referred to as structural knowledge -- that goes beyond traditional forms of information recall to provide the bases for knowledge application. Assuming that the validity of the concept is accepted, the volume functions as a handbook for supporting the assessment and use of structural knowledge in learning and instructional settings. It's descriptions are direct and short, and its structure is consistent. Almost all of the chapters describe a technique for representing and assessing structural knowledge acquisition, conveying knowledge structures through direct instruction, or providing learners with strategies that they may use to acquire structural knowledge. These chapters include the following sections in the same sequence: * description of the technique and its theoretical or conceptual rationale * examples and applications * procedures for development and use * effectiveness -- learner interactions and differences, and advantages and disadvantages * references to the literature. The chapters are structured to facilitate access to information as well as to illuminate comparisons and contrasts among the techniques.

This book provides a thorough explanation of MindtoolsM197>alternative ways of using computer applications to engage learners in constructive, higher-order thinking about specific areas of study. It presents a rationale for using these tools, discusses individual Mindtools and their use, and suggests effective ways to teach with each Mindtool. Weaves a critical thinking framework throughout the text. Expands coverage of systems modeling tools with new sections on analysis and reasoning. Adds an entirely new section of the book, which includes chapters on intentional information searching via Internet and visualization tools. For educators and school administrators.

This text examines the Mindtool concept - alternative ways of using computer applications to engage in constructive, high-order thinking about particular areas of study, thus extending learning outcomes and expectations beyond recall and helping learners become self-directed critical thinkers. Jonassen presents: a rationale for using Mindtool; in-depth discussions of the indiviidual Mindtools and their use; and suggestions for teaching with mindtools and evaluating the results.

This book addresses how to use very specific types of technology and focuses on how technology can be used as a thinking tool to foster meaningful learning. The book approaches learning from a constructivist view and relates it to using technology to engage meaningful learning.Within each chapter, the book provides different activities and implementation strategies in the Technique sections and follow-up questions in the Things to Think About sections. Very current uses of technology such as video theater, cybermentoring,creating homepages, and hypermedia are discussed throughout the book.

Well-known for addressing the use of computers to foster critical-thinking and problem solving, this text was written to teach current and future teachers how to better engage learners more mindfully and meaningfully in the process of learning. Available now in it's Third Edition, it focuses on how to use technology to support meaningful learning through model building, providing powerful strategies for engaging, supporting, and assessing coonceptual change in learners.
