Abstract

One of the main challenges for those working in the field of ICT mediated learning is to develop innovative systems to support the knowledge building process. Did@browser, a system developed in the Institute for Educational Technology, is an attempt to meet this challenge. It is a new educational tool for middle schools which stimulates awareness of students’ cognitive and learning strategies by asking metacognitive questions during hypermedia web surfing. This paper presents the features of the system, the pilot study carried out with pupils, the results, and the suggestions for further developments.
