Discussant on Argumentation Symposium CALRG09
Richard Joiner summarise at CALRG09

The forcefulness of arguments may well depend on needs: arguing to sell v arguing to learn. The tools can also help reveal to the researchers what learners are doing but can also reveal to learners and teachers the weaknesses in arguments and areas that need to be addressed. He also came up with the opportunity for a Reading Group support tool.
