Helping Students Evaluate Internet Sources
When Dr. Mark Pierson sees students misquoting or misusing information, he uses it as a learning moment to help students write stronger posts with credible sources.
“If I think their source is the problem, then I reply to their question using the Counter Point feature so everyone can read how to improve their posts in the future and how to look more carefully at references they’re using.”
