Abstract

This work presents a conceptual framework for ‘learning design’-based e-learning systems focusing on the role of the development of learners’ cognitive skills and critical thinking. To this end, an attempt has been made to map basic dimensions of thinking to ‘learning design’ through the proposal of an innovative environment which includes various features such as: i) a set of design-patterns for the design of appropriate learning activities, ii) communication tools aiming for the development of these thinking dimensions as well as for the formation of appropriate teacher-interventions, iii) regulation tools to be used by the learners to take control of their learning, iv) monitoring tools supporting appropriate teacher interventions encouraging critical thinking, v) teacher scaffolding elements in terms of providing a teacher education curricula based on thinking skills, and vi) meaningful online help for teachers providing explanations and examples regarding the pedagogical and technical use of the tools proposed.
