When working on assignments, it’s simple for students to search the web, but Microsoft now wants to teach those kids how to recognise false material and think critically in general. Microsoft is adding a Search Progress tool to Teams for Education, which works in conjunction with the already-existing Search Coach feature to assist teachers in fostering positive online research habits through practise assignments.
Teachers can check to see that students are searching responsibly in addition to requiring a minimum number of sources for an assignment. They will be able to tell if students are simply clicking the first result in the results page or using filters like NewsGuard to evaluate the quality of the sources. Before submitting a project, students can also demonstrate their thought process and effort.
The Progress feature supports Search Coach, which helps students using Teams to both do more accurate searches and keep an eye out for fabrications. They can restrict searches to specific date ranges, file categories, and domains (like.gov or.edu). They can even run searches through fact-checking websites to see whether a claim can be verified. The results of Bing’s safe search are free of advertisements by default. In order to improve their lessons, teachers might use use search trends.
Later in the year, Search Progress will be accessible in preview form. Teams all across the world already have access to Search Coach. Microsoft claims that both functions will support over 50 different languages.
Additionally, Microsoft seeks to raise kids’ overall reading abilities. In order to give students more reading fluency practise both online and in the apps they use, the company’s Reading Coach will be made available in the Immersive Readers for Word Online, OneNote, Teams Assignments, Minecraft Education, and other platforms. In the meantime, Reading Progress will include comprehension questions to make sure youngsters fully comprehend what they read. Later this year, both enhancements will be made available.
