Microsoft encourages pupils to improve their internet research skills
Students may easily surf the web for information when working on homework, but Microsoft now wants to educate those kids how to recognise disinformation and think critically. In addition to the current Search Coach function, Microsoft is launching a Search Progress feature in Teams for Education that will assist instructors in developing good online research habits via practise work. Instructors may not only need a particular number of sources for an assignment, but they can also check to see if students are searching properly – they’ll know whether students are merely clicking the first site in the results, or if they’re using filters like NewsGuard to assess source quality. Students can also demonstrate their rationale and effort prior to submitting a project.
