7 Things You Should Know About Collaborative Annotation | EDUCAUSE - 0 views

  • Collaborative annotation tools expand the concept of social bookmarking by allowing users not only to share bookmarks but also to digitally annotate web pages. Rather than simply pointing to particular web pages, collaborative annotation lets users highlight specific content on a web page and add a note explaining their thoughts or pointing to additional resources. Students who use these tools for academic research can, over time, build a collection of their own studies and observations in much the same way generations of students have saved texts with dog-eared pages, highlighted passages, scribbled comments, and sticky notes. The activity of adding reflections as marginalia can move students from being passive consumers of information to active readers engaged in scholarly discussions.
    The concept of collaborative annotation may seem strange to you now. I think that the real nature of this work will provide a eureka moment that makes web 2.0 tools suddenly make a lot of sense!
