Computers, Thinking and Learning provides teachers with successful strategies for implementing the full potential of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in middle and upper school humanities classrooms.

A practical and innovative resource, it has the authentic voice of a teacher and is an inspirational guide for busy teachers across a range of subjects.

Chapter topics encourage greater student involvement in the deeper and more significant processes of thinking and learning with each chapter divided into three parts:

  1. The learning and thinking context
  2. Classroom strategies
  3. Wider applications and suggested activities.


  1. Concept Mapping: ICT as a thinking and learning tool
  2. Oral language: avoiding death by PowerPoint
  3. On Line Discussion: a challenge for thinking skills
  4. Hypertext: a writing tool for lateral thinking
  5. Visual literacies: moving on from text-based learning
  6. Responding to student work: can computers help?
