7 Summary of Session 7

This session continued where Session 6 left off. You:

  • revisited the recipe for mapping arguments and applied it to several arguments: a short text, a video and a presentation slide.
  • considered web-based collaborative argument mapping. You saw that some of these tools combine the power of argument mapping with social media tools such as voting.
  • looked at the role of implicit assumptions or beliefs in arguments and how, to interpret an argument map correctly, you need to take such assumptions into account.

The next session examines the future of digital thinking tools. We ask whether, with the rise of artificial intelligence, digital thinking tools will become obsolete: Will machines do all our thinking for us? And, perhaps even more importantly, should we let machines do our thinking for us?
