A naïve mental model in the context of computer programming is that a computer is an intelligent system, and that giving directions to a computer is like giving directions to a human being.

One kind of mental model for the computer is the naïve model. According to van Merriënboer (1997), "A naïve mental model in the context of computer programming is that a computer is an intelligent system, and that giving directions to a computer is like giving directions to a human being."

If children and adults do not notice that they are not learning, they are unlikely to seek a strategic remedy.

Reference

Without realizing the ineffectiveness of one’s learning strategy, one will not try new strategy. According to Garner (1990), "If children and adults do not notice that they are not learning, they are unlikely to seek a strategic remedy" (p. 518).

Research in inquiry learning currently focuses on finding scaffolds or cognitive tools that help to alleviate these problems and produce effective and efficient learning situations. Computer environments can integrate these cognitive tools with the simulation.

Reference

Teachers are encouraged to use cognitive tools. There are several cognitive tools available to teachers.  “Computer environments can integrate these cognitive tools with the simulation” (de Jong, 2006, p. 532).
