Title: Social Annotation as Justice-Oriented Collaborative Dialogue among K12 Educators

This presentation will introduce social annotation (SA) as an effective approach to online collaborative learning through practices and tools that enable the annotation of digital resources for information sharing, social interaction, and knowledge construction. Our team of five presenters–with expertise as teacher educators, learning scientists, literacy researchers, and educational technology leaders–will share guidelines for the design of learning environments and activity facilitation that feature SA as a means of examining and discussing topics of educational equity and justice. Specifically, we will share strategies for how teacher educators can productively facilitate justice-oriented collaborative dialogue via SA and engage K12 pre-service and in-service classroom teachers in SA activities as relevant to professional learning, digital pedagogy, and online student learning. Furthermore, our presentation will demonstrate how the Marginal Syllabus, a public CSCL initiative and curricular resource, supports teacher educators to leverage SA for collaborative dialogue about equitable and just educational practices.

You can stream the webinar and participate in the subsequent Q & A session here on Wednesday, January 20th 2021, 3:00 – 4:00 pm (GMT, London, UK):
