In an experiment studying critical thinking in a teacher-guided (F2F) and computer-supported (CS) group learning environment, significant differences were found between CS and F2F. CS brought in more outside world material, linked ideas to solutions and contributed less. However the level of CS critical thinking was higher, and had a higher ratio of important statements. F2F on the other hand was slightly better at generating new ideas.
