Mark Up the Margin: Engaging Students in Course Readings with Social Annotation
In collaboration with the Online Learning Consortium and AnnotatED, the community for annotation in education, Hypothesis is convening a free workshop on collaborative annotation at Accelerate 2020. Register now to join on Friday 6 November 2020.
The workshop will start off with a quick orientation to collaborative annotation for social reading: what is it, and how are people using it to enrich online learning? This will be followed by Notes from the Field, where you'll hear from a variety of AnnotatED community members about how collaborative annotation is happening at their schools, and you’ll have the chance to discuss your ideas and questions with these experienced practitioners.
The main focus of the workshop will be a hands-on activity to explore, discuss, and augment readings on topics shaped by Accelerate 2020 keynoter Flower Darby. We'll practice reading together to see firsthand how collaborative annotation can build understanding, connections, and community. Our conversations will be anchored in texts — literally — and spread out to engage other texts, ideas, and people beyond the workshop itself.
