Sawyer Seminar Workshop: "" by Jeremy Dean

Friday, January 15, 2016

Speaker: Jeremy Dean, Director of Education at, Former Director of Education at RapGenius

This workshop explores web annotation as an essential pedagogical practice for the 21st century classroom. This emergent technology allows Internet users to privately comment on or publicly discuss any web page. It can be leveraged to teach students traditional literacy skills like close reading but also newer forms of digital and media literacy. Workshop participants will be introduced to the pedagogical value of web annotation and gain hands-on experience with an open-source, standards-based annotation client. Participants will leave with a solid orientation in the basic functionality of web annotation as well as specific collaborative annotation exercises that can be used in the classroom.
