I recently presented on my experiences supporting social annotation in Hypothes.is at their Social Annotation Summit 2022. I was part of a showcase of people working in centers for teaching and learning who support Hypothes.is at their school. We each shared insights on how faculty members have been using social annotation in their courses.
For my short talk, I share the story behind my favorite annotation a student made on a reading using Hypothes.is. (Spoiler: the annotation was 💥). The annotation was powerful because the student leveraged digital media using Hypothes.is to communicate a sentiment in their annotation that would have been awkward if they used text. Check out my story below, and hear from others who have observed other ways that social annotation can support teaching and learning.
