Let's consider some example programs we've built at ILS that help students learn by reflection. One program we've constructed,
The Sounding Board, peppers its users with questions to them find creative approaches to a problem they're facing.
Questions are not only at the heart of processes like creativity which are often considered to be at the pinnacle of human intelligence. They are equally useful for more mundane mental processes like those involved in understanding stories. To show how a program can use questions to help learners with such tasks, we built the Movie Reader to help children learn how to read.
