In 2020, schools around the world scrambled to adopt tools to enable remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many teachers found new ways to engage their students in reading using Hypothesis social annotation. Discover how the benefits of reading together with annotation go beyond remote learning.
This special edition of Liquid Margins coincides with our free AnnotatED workshop kicking off OLC Innovate 2021. Join us at 8am PT along with educators presenting at OLC Innovate for a conversation anchored in texts, showing how social annotation builds understanding, connections, and community. Or hop on at 9am PT for Liquid Margins as we meet up with educators using social annotation to help students read, interpret, and comment on scientific texts.
Social annotation is gathering momentum all around the globe. In this episode of Liquid Margins we “travel” to Ontario, Canada, to discuss how the pedagogical practice is gaining traction in Canadian higher education. We're joined by Associate Professor of History at Trent University Olga Andriewsky and Trent University Department of Psychology Associate Professor Fergal O’Hagan.
This episode of Liquid Margins traces the story of social learning and student success in the Contra Costa Community College District, where weaving social annotation in as a teaching practice has significantly increased student engagement and learning outcomes. We welcome guests from Contra Costa College, Maritez Apigo — Distance Education Coordinator, Open Education Resources Coordinator, and English Professor — and Brandon Marshall, English Professor. Joining them as the show’s guest moderator is Kat King, Instructional Designer at Diablo Valley College and English Instructor at Las Positas College. RSVP to learn more about the Contra Costa story and glean insights about using collaborative annotation as a tool for constructing learning communities and knowledge sharing in the margins of texts.
