A Case Study: Applying Critical Thinking Skills to Computer Science and Technology
Shannon, Li-Jen; Bennett, Judith
Information Systems Education Journal, v10 n4 p41-48 Aug 2012
A majority of incoming college freshmen and sophomores have not applied their critical thinking skills as part of their learning process. This paper investigates how students acquire their critical thinking skills while facing the copyright, fair use, and internet security challenges in this contemporary digital society. The findings show that 90 percent of students were not able to apply their critical thinking skills with valid reasoning when they made a decision based on the case scenarios.
