"Scaffolding" is an important process in learning. It is based on the idea that learners already have some knowledge when they come into the classroom. The teacher needs to build onto this knowledge, or in other words "scaffold". When learning games and exercises are introduced into the educational process, it is important to ensure that learners avoid random answers and that they consiously select a solution. While in cMinds there is little danger of random solutions as a program is highly structured, it is a good idea to ask learners to document in words their line of thinking so that they better become aware of their thinking process. For this reason, the cMinds learning suite provides a "Memo" zone, in which learners can take notes in their own words explaining their understanding of the problem, the inputs, the requested outcomes, and their solution.
