Project description:The main objective of the project is improving the quality of education and cognitive education through systematic development of selected cognitive and metacognitive abilities of students. The immanent part of this objective is the implementation of innovative methods into the teaching process in the form of various types of argumentation software. The understanding of logical structure of the argument is often fairly difficult for students. The ability of logically correct argumentation is a prerequisite for forming (and construction) of all types of a specific texts. Software programs for the development of argumentation and explanatory skills (e.g. Rationale, Araucaria, iLogos, Argumentative - Argument Map Software and others) help students to realize a critical analysis of scientific texts by using transparent argumentation schemes with clearly defined relationship between the basic elements. The university students may thus on the one hand, easier understand and interpret the scientific texts and on the other hand they may clearly articulate their own ideas and identify in them any contradictions or other logical errors. The result will be the improvement of university students` works (seminar, semester and final) that will not only have compilation - descriptive character, but also explanatory -- argumentation character. Tangible objective of the project is methodical and educational material for the system development of argumentation skills and skills of writing scientific texts within the university education.
