Computers as Cognitive Tools: Learning with Technology, Not from Technology.
Jonassen, David H.
Journal of Computing in Higher Education, v6 n2 p40-73 Spr 1995
Cognitive tools, computer-based applications normally used as productivity software, can also function as knowledge representation formalisms that require learners to think critically. Databases, spreadsheets, semantic networks, expert systems, and multimedia/hypermedia construction can function as computer-based cognitive tools to expand student thinking, changing the college student's role to that of knowledge constructor rather than information reproducer.
