Critical thinking skills can be tedious and complex to learn and practice. With Argumentful we want to set the stage for the beginning of a more rational society which is more difficult to manipulate.
To accomplish this, we are building a learning space and community where people can learn and practice critical thinking, by using real life scenarios fused with argument mapping. Our argument mapping tool and blog are up and active and we’re now working on the learning app which we hope to launch later this year.
