Abstract This article outlines the development and application of the Theory of Web-Mediated Knowledge Synthesis. This theory, essentially the application of creative thinking to online learning and reading comprehension, provides a roadmap to enable learners to use the web in more creative ways. This is an important consideration in both schools and the workspace as access to information is less a competitive advantage than what is done with that information and what value can be added to it. In addition to chronicling the foundations of theory development, this article also reports on current efforts to use it to scaffold more creative thinking on the web with graduate students.
