Abstract

This study introduces "MEET eJournalPlus," a tabletPC based reading support software. The purpose of this software is to assist the learner in reading e-documents with accurate comprehension and a critical attitude in order to improve his/her critical reading skills. In the software, the user can underline critical words and phrases in e-documents, create concept maps, and edit reports within the interface. This study executes an experiment to reveal the effect of concept maps that are made by learners from their assigned texts for critical reading. Learners who make concept maps while reading the texts, and write their reports referring to their concept maps, can realize more constructive knowledge-building than learners who do not use concept maps.
