Web 2.0 tools and critical thinking skills: a study at the Eduardo Mondlane University

This paper was presented at the Distance Education and Teacher's Training in Africa (DETA) 2011 Conference, in August 2011, Mozambique. Critical thinking may be positively affected by the application of Web 2.0 tools within the educational context. Recently, many studies indicate that student’s critical thinking abilities can be fostered through the application of Web 2.0 tools. For example, Richardson (2006, quoted in Duffy & Bruns, 2006) believes that blogs, wikis, and other Web 2.0 tools have great potentiality in terms of its use in an educational context. Richardson highlights that such tools can promote critical thinking and analytical thinking and can foster creative and intuitive thinking.
