Margaret writes,

 By ICT Mindtools I refer to ICT tools that necessarily engage users
 in higher order thinking.  

Students cannot use Mindtools without thinking deeply about the task at 
hand.  Mindtools require students to be creative and to think and make 
connections for themselves.

'Children need to learn learning, which is primarily acquired through the 
passion that comes from access, the ability to make things, to 
communicate and to express. 

Writing a computer program, while seemingly esoteric, is in fact the 
closest a child can come to thinking about thinking. Likewise, debugging 
a program is the closest one can come to learning learning.'
