Abstract

This brief paper presentation is based on the instructional application of databases as mindtools for learning in asynchronous distance learning environments. Hilda Taba's Concept Development strategy and Jerome Bruner's Discovery Learning Theory are referred to as guidelines throughout the instructional design and development process. Databases as mindtools, generated with various computer software, such as Microsoft Access, FileMaker Pro or AppleWorks, are applied for managing different learning content. An asynchronous distance learning instruction will be demonstrated for enabling students to organize, represent, and express their learning process and learning products, as well as facilitating critical thinking and higher-order learning.
