The Medium is the Message: Technology Enhances Different Aspects of Thinking
The current study evaluated a program in which technology was designed to enhance thinking among preservice
teachers. The study examined whether and how technology contributed to enhancing thinking and revealed that the use of
different technological environments enhanced different aspects of thinking (thinking-skills; understanding; thinkingdispositions).
Three courses used three different technological environments: computer-games, Wiki or video. Based on
analyzing participants' reflective journals, projects and questionnaires, technology seemed to have a potential to enhance
thinking as an equalizer of thinking processes: it intensifies the learning experience and stimulates thinking.
