Tech Snack: Teach Critical Reading through Social Annotation

Wednesday, April 8 at 3:30 pm in Fleck 314

Join your colleagues and instructional technology staff to discuss how you can use social annotation tools to help your students read better.  Social annotation helps uncover student reading practices so you can see where they got it right or wrong.  There are a range of tools that can be used to highlight and add notes to digital texts, and then share these annotations.  Join Jeremy Dean, Director of Education at and past Education Czar at (Rap) Genius to hear about the open annotation vision and discuss how to get your students reading, annotating, and collaborating outside of the physical classroom.
