Hypothes.is Social Annotation Tool: Overview, Pilot Project, Proposal: Home
Cool stuff about a cool tool for integrated read/write/research strategies.
Assignment 1 - Read King's Letter from Birmingham Jail and create at least 2 annotations per page. Your annotations will be assessed for credit based on it meeting at least ONE of these specific criteria - Does your annotation...
provide additional information such as a definition or fact?
contain a question that would lead to a deeper conversation about the text?
introduce background context to deepen understanding of the text?
Assignment 2 - Go back to King's Letter from Birmingham Jail annotation assignment and read each others annotations. Create replies on any annotation that captures your interest and tell the writer why it caught your interest. What specifically did you notice? What do you wonder?
Something like this for personal accountability works well. Students enjoy reading each others annotations for sure! But...that's the point of social annotation. The are creating a conversation between themselves and the text and then furthering that conversation between their annotations and replies. Be fearless! Go for it.
Discover how the benefits of reading together with annotation go beyond remote learning. In this episode of Liquid Margins we’ll hear from Mary Isbell of the University of New Haven and John Stewart of the University of Oklahoma, both of whom have long used social annotation to make reading active, visible, and social with their students, and see it as essential for knowledge sharing, community building, and student success.
Note: Liquid Margins is a show where we gather to talk about collaborative annotation, social learning, and other ways we make knowledge together.
Next, assign each PDF to a different group of students in your LMS (methods will vary depending on the LMS). Doing this will make sure that students in one group do not see the annotations made by students in another group.
SpeedGrader requires the concept of submitting an assignment in order to work, and Hypothesis does not have a “Submit” button. Hypothesis creates a submission whenever a student launches an assignment, even if they have not made any annotations. That’s why you may see a student appear in SpeedGrader when they haven’t annotated yet.
Because students might visit an assignment, annotate, leave, come back and annotate some more, etc., we know that “launching an assignment” is not necessarily an accurate representation of when a student’s work is complete. We use a hard-coded submission time stamp that is far enough in the past to not be mistaken for a real submission date. If you wish to evaluate student annotations against an assignment deadline, each annotation card contains a date/time stamp for the annotation and any edits.
In the future, we may explore the option of adding a “Submit” button to our UI or using “most recent assignment launch” as the submission timestamp.
