Why build this site ?

   As graduate students in the New Media and Global Education program at Appalachian State University,
       we are interested in learning how computers can be used in education to more effectively teach students
       and engage them in critical thinking skills. This web site was designed to survey and educate students on mindtools.



“Mindtools are computer applications that, when used by learners to represent what they know,
necessarily engage them in critical thinking about the content they are studying.”
