Student Management of Web-based Hypermedia Resources during Open-Ended Problem Solving.
Oliver, Kevin; Hannafin, Michael J.
Journal of Educational Research, v94 n2 p75-92 Nov-Dec 2000
Investigated middle school students' computer tool use in managing and manipulating Internet-based hypermedia resources, hypothesizing that tools would let students process hypermedia resources at higher levels to solve complex, open-ended questions. Tools alone did not help students manage hypermedia information for solving these problems. Results neither supported nor refuted the possibility that tool use supported higher order thinking. (SM)
