Fiskkit Classroom Pilot: Practicing Critical Thinking

Join Stamford University, Simmons College and dozens of High Schools in the San Francisco Bay Area by participating in this important Pilot Program. 

What is it?

Helping students develop critical thinking skills is one of the greatest educational and civic challenges of the 21st Century. Fiskkit.com is a startup dedicated to elevating public discourse through critical and respectful analysis of online news articles.

In the educational environment, Fiskkit allows students to practice critical thinking and educators to measure and track students’ critical thinking skills over time. We are seeking educators interested in testing this new innovative tool in their classrooms.

Fiskkit is the online version of marking up an article with a red pen.

Fiskkit  allows students to comment on individual sentences in an article and tag them as True or False (or Opinion), logical fallacies like Overgeneralization or Cherry Picking, other flaws like Unsupported or Biased Wording, or compliments like Insightful and Well-Researched.
