* Introduction:
Cognitive skills are concerned with analysis, interpretation and decision
making processes required for performing the procedural tasks. The development
of cognitive skill demands a more sophisticated learning process as much of
its process runs inside a human mind and may largely rely on self-explanations
as a learner studies an example and attempts a given problem.

It is easier for a learning system researcher, designer or implementer to
consider the facilitation of physical skills due to their external visibility,
but it seems important to have stronger focus on cognitive skills acquisition,
particularly for life long learners who may not be learning in the traditional

We invite discussion on these and related issues with a view to better understand
the emerging trends in research, design and implementation of systems for
cognitive skills acquisition in life-long learning.
