Showing Evidence Meets Classroom Success

Showing Evidence, an educational tool that Inquirium developed for Intel, is hitting the classroom and getting some rave reviews. The Winter 2006 edition of the Intel Innovator provides this exciting testimonial of how one classroom successfully used Showing Evidence to explore controversial biotechnology topics. Students used the tool to construct arguments, support them with evidence, evaluate their claims, and share their thinking with peers.

Students were so engaged that they used Showing Evidence from home, and were still talking about the project six months later. Several students, who had strong opinions, changed their position based on compelling evidence they uncovered themselves— a first in [the teacher’s] 17 years of teaching.
