About Surfmark

Surfmark is an online research application that encourages critical thinking and helps students learn how to synthesize and integrate knowledge around topics. It teaches them how to dig deeper into topics, how to distinguish between facts and opinions and how to properly attribute their research.

Surfmark provides the student a structured way to capture the inherently unstructured dynamically changing content that is available online, providing them the tools and opportunity to more effectively synthesis and organize and then collaborate on this information.

With Surfmark we are attempting to change the whole structure of a work assignment and in the process making students better critical thinkers. We hope that someday a ‘surfmark’ itself will become the primary deliverable of a work assignment. It has all the ingredients for that:

  • It provides teachers with a deep and unique view into students’ thinking process as they research complex topics;
  • It lets teachers offer specific pointers that can directly improve students’ performance; and
  • Students are able to navigate through complicated texts to analyze, synthesize and integrate ideas and successfully apply their learning to projects

We are small group of people who passionately believe that knowledge is the most equalizing force in the world. If students get the tools to process it properly, they can achieve any goal they set for themselves.
