Middle school students are first in the country using college level software | News
ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A Nagel Middle School teacher has helped her students become the first K-12 in the country using a new college-level software.
In October Moore was looking for an engaging way for her students to practice close reading, a key part of the Common Core Curriculum, and heard about the NowComment® document discussion tool from Dr. Lisa Campbell, an educational consultant for Hamilton County.
Though designed for university and corporate users, Moore checked it out and decided her technology-loving students were savvy enough to handle it. Over 450 Nagel students and teachers are now using NowComment for close reading, sharing stories, and group projects.
Cincinnati native Dan Doernberg, whose Virginia-based public interest group Fairness.com LLC developed NowComment, is flying in to meet with Nagel teachers on Tuesday, February 19 to see first-hand how these young users are interacting with his software.
