Abstract

This paper wants to analyze some possibilities offered by technological solutions available nowadays as CmapTools; it wants to suggest some possible progressive outlines aimed to satisfy the need of developing a language/natural thought, and an educational method to meaningful and complex thought in the area of Computer Supported Collaborative Learning to be used in the period of primary school which is considered as a crucial time for the development of the thought organ in children of 5/6 to 10/11 years old. The examples taken from the results of common didactic work carried out in classroom describe the technological solutions offered by the software CmapTools to develop the human cognitive ability and in specific “to the passage from unconscious concepts to conscious concepts along the extension of scholar age” (Vygotskij) and they show in a evident way and for their own virtues the problematic fecundity of the interaction between language faculty, representation and development of complex thought.
