Problem Solving and Critical Thinking for Computer Science Educators.
Norris, Cathleen A., Ed.; Poirot, James L., Ed.
The eight papers presented in this monograph are a result of the Problem Solving and Critical Thinking Research Workshop that was held in conjunction with the 1990 National Educational Computing Conference (NECC). The intent of the workshop was to provide a unique forum for researchers to share ideas in a special area of educational computing. The monograph provides an overview of the general issues of problem solving and critical thinking in education as well as specialized areas of interest in intelligent tutoring and program construction. The papers included in this monograph are: (1) "Problem Solving, Critical Thinking, and Computing: An Overview" (Cathleen A. Norris and James L. Poirot); (2) "'Mindstorms' Revisited: Computers, Problem Solving, and Knowledge-based Instruction" (Karen Swan); (3) "Defining Programming and Logo as Vehicles for Developing Higher Order Thinking Skills" (Jim Dunne); (4) "Abstracted Knowledge: A Mid-Road Transfer Approach to Critical Thinking" (Clifton S. Harris); (5) "Resolving the Impasse in Software Engineering: Problem Solving in Program Construction" (Warren Moseley); (6) "Critical Thinking and Intelligent Tutoring Systems" (James T. Streib); (7) "Critical Thinking and Open Courseware" (Eduardo Rivera); and (8) "'What Can We Learn from Each Other's Experiences?': Observations of a Research-Oriented Workshop by a Classroom Teacher" (Sylvia Robinson). References are included with most papers. (ALF)
