Your Mission…Should You Choose to Accept

Throughout this learning experience, we’ll use to annotate and communicate across this site and others. But to truly understand how digital and social annotation can be used in the classroom or with colleagues (online or on-ground), it takes some creative and critical thinking of our own. If you feel like you want to get your feet wet with in a practical and pedagogical sense, please feel free to join in and complete this final project.

Final Project Details

To complete the final project, get creative about how you would like to use digital, social annotation. If you’re a teacher, you may want to think about ways to use as a tool for discussion, for collaborative reading, or as a means of connecting learners with critical reading communities online. If you’re an administrator, are there uses for social annotation in your workplace? For example, could be used to build teams, form consensus, create dialogue around administrative concerns? Alternatively, as a researcher and scholar, how might you use digital annotation in your work with collaborators, etc.?

Write a brief plan for how you hope to use This plan should look and read like something you would share with your target audience (i.e., students, co-workers, colleagues). It might be part of your syllabus, the description of an assignment, a memo, or a call to researchers in your field, for example.

When you’re finished, e-mail the plan to Sean or Jeremy and we’ll offer feedback as soon as we can. If you are interested in wider feedback, let us know and we’ll upload an annotatable PDF of your plan to this site and share it with the MiddAnnotate group.

The final project will be due no later than February 3, 2017 (earlier if you want to get feedback from the MiddAnnotate group). If you have questions, reach out to either Sean or Jeremy.

We look forward to seeing your ideas!
