Use Cases of Web Annotation

Please pardon a question here in English, please feel free to reply en español.

I am interested in hearing about uses of web annotation in educational contexts. A recent presentation from a sociology professor ar UAEM shared experiences of using web annotation activities in Spanish:

She collected student experiences shared as video

and the presentation slides

I have much interest in developing community activities here at OE Global taking advantage of web annotation, but am interested to know of more examples among OELATAM using this approach.

Aquí en inglés pero yo feliz contestar/interactuar en español.

I would be really interested in this topic. I have been using in my classrooms but mostly in English although my students and colleagues tend to bounce between English/Spanish.

I did engage with the folks at Hypothesis about tutorials in Spanish and Nate Angell in particular is interested in driving more support to Spanish speaking communities.

I tend to grab papers (pdf form hosted locally often) or blog posts to mark up with a private group for my class. My students really engaged with this format in my software engineering class this semester and I received good comments about that. I really should post about that.

Gracias, Ken.

I’d like to think this is an attractive idea, as annotation is not a new academic task, but what is new is the potential when it can happen in a shared space. But better than that, this is a tool that can be used by any one, and is free from being tied to a platform. And any public web page can be annotated.

¡Veo un gran potencial aquí!
