A tool for teaching critical thinking



Kialo Edu is a tool for teaching critical thinking. It is an argument mapping and debate site. It aims to help students to:


·      Put their knowledge into action

·      Sharpen their critical reasoning skills

·      Demonstrate their understanding

·      Engage constructively with each other


It can be used to host classroom debates and enable students to develop their own views on classroom content. It can also be used to assess learning. It has an argument-tree structure, which enables students to consider counter-arguments, develop a logical structure of their argument and visualize how their ideas fit together.  It also allows students to share knowledge, by participating in a discussion along with links to resources and readings. Discussions and debates are visualized as an interactive tree of pros and cons. Teachers can provide feedback and suggest improvements.
