Paul Avila's curator insight, November 30, 2013 9:57 PM

This is an interesting idea to use in the classroom. It would motivate students to improve their skills to achieve these badges. I would suggest implementing these with some incentive system so that students pursue these badges instead of earning them passively as useless labels. These badges can be useful to track progress of historical thinking skills.

Possibly not just for teachers, but if it works so well then maybe the authors might need to think again, 'brevity the soul of wit'

Phil Turner's curator insight, December 3, 2013 6:03 PM

This looks surprisingly effective (in my test of one article) ... and could be a useful first order tool for scanning large amounts of work.  Students might learn to summarise/paraphrase by looking carefully at how the results relate to the original text (if they can resist just cutting and pasting the new words).
