Blackburn, Patrick (ed.) et al., Tools for teaching logic. Third international congress, TICTTL 2011, Salamanca, Spain, June 1‒4, 2011. Proceedings. Berlin: Springer (ISBN 978-3-642-21349-6/pbk). Lecture Notes in Computer Science 6680. Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence, 190-197 (2011).
Summary: The paper discusses the use of the tools provided by the course Logic \& Proofs, of the Open Learning Initiative (Carnegie Mellon University), for teaching Logic to freshmen students of Business Administration and Engineering at Francisco Marroquín University (Guatemala) over a period of two years. It is argued that the distinctive focus of the course-“strategic argumentation”-needs to be adapted to the students specific interests in order to be relevant to their education. Polya’s “heuristic” approach to problem-solving is proposed as a complement to the course.
