Top News - New search tool gives pause to some - 0 views

If it works as advertised, the web site, called WolframAlpha, could be another useful tool for students and researchers -- though some educators say they are skeptical about the search tool.

Now, WolframAlpha lets the wider world have a crack at it--something that gives pause to some in education.

  • In the Embedded Model, we’re simply reintroducing the social elements that used to be part of a typical instructor-led class—reflection, debrief, sharing of opinions and perspectives, and the discussion of best practices.
  • In the Wrapped Model, we’re providing a social platform for the interactions that already happen around formal courseware.
