Annotation Storm – How to Guide

What is an annotation storm?

An annotation storm is an intense flurry of social annotation of an online text that takes place during a short, set period of time.

Through social annotation of online texts, readers share their thoughts about the text via marginal annotations, and discuss the annotations right there in the context of the original text. In doing so, the readers of the text add layers of new meaning and interpretation to the original text.

We’ll be using Hypothes.is, an online platform for social annotation, to read and annotate Robin DeRosa’s article about her experiences transforming a first-year seminar with Open Education principles, Extreme Makeover: Pedagogy Edition.

When is it happening?

The annotation storm of Extreme Makeover: Pedagogy Editionis happening from January 21 – 23, 2019. This coincides with the Teaching and Learning in the Open: A Conversation with Robin DeRosa event on January 22, 2019, at Middlebury College and online via zoom.
