Abstract

This paper presents an investigation of whether computer mediated communication (CMC) can develop critical thinking in language classrooms. The research was conducted at a university branch campus in Malaysia over a period of 12 weeks. It involved three groups of learners in which each group was exposed to different discussion modes. The first group was exposed to a CMC discussion
mode, the second group was exposed to a mixed mode of CMC and
face-to-face (F2F) discussions and the third group had only the
face-to-face mode of discussion. The critical thinking development
in these three conditions was evaluated based on the content analysis
method used by Newman, Johnson, Cochrane and Webb (1995).
This research reports the findings which hopefully will give some
insight to other teaching practitioners who are interested in
incorporating IT in their classrooms.
