To become a more active reader (we are taught), we must think of ourselves as in dialogue with the text we are reading and scribble notes in the margin. Increasingly, however, students rely on digital editions that necessarily change the way they interact with the text. Digital annotation preserves the ancient practice of annotation, while creating new opportunities for interaction and collaboration. In this Compass, we will discuss the opportunities digital annotation tools, specifically hypothesis.is, create for new forms of student engagement, allowing them to share ideas, interpretations, references, or media that significantly change the way students acquire and produce knowledge.

Presenter: Rachel Schnepper, Director of Academic Technology, ITS
