As part of the Innovating with Technology research trial, our project was to apply ICT to help students improve their critical thinking skills during the persuasive writing process. Whilst technology tools such as Clickview and Spellodrome were used, this research report analyses the use of Intel’s Showing Evidence tool as a means to determine improvement in students’ ability to create a claim, apply evidence to the claim and evaluate the quality of the evidence. The research is based on five Year 9 teachers across six Year 9 English classes consistently using the same ICT approach.
