Emergent technology is revolutionizing the way we can navigate and engage with content on the Internet. New tools allow us to annotate inline on web pages for both personal note-taking and for communal discussion. Students and teachers can make particularly powerful use of this technology as it clearly aligns with learning goals in the humanities like close reading and media literacy. Web annotation tools allow teachers to follow students as they explore interest-driven inquiry across the Internet and also enables teachers and students to actively and critically engage with current events as they are represented in web sources.
In this webinar, our partner hypothes.is focused on the history of social writing and annotation practices more broadly and then considered the possibilities for collaborative student annotation on the web and in today’s classroom.
