One of the most important skills for 21st century successful professionals regardless of their field is critical thinking, which enables them to make wise, informed decisions and solve problems. This poster presentation aims at sharing and discussing the process and the results of a learning adventure project wherein preservice teachers enrolled in the course EDIT 2000: Introduction to Computers for Teachers learn through the eyes of a student by engaging in a critical thinking and problem solving project themselves. This project requires them to gather technological resources, design a multi-day lesson addressing a Georgia Performance Standard and publish it on a website to guide a hypothetical K-12 group of students through the learning adventure. This project will help educators and practitioners striving to address and foster college student's critical thinking and problem solving skills.
