Annotation Studio is a collaborative online annotation tool for teaching and learning in the humanities, developed at Hyperstudio, Center for Digital Humanities at MIT.

This is a workshop for educators, administrators, librarians, developers and technologists interested in exploring the affordances and implications of annotation as a tool for learning.

We’ll open with a walkthrough of the tool and its functionality, which will provide a foundation for discussion of how a simple tool with a focused range of functionality can underpin a wide range of pedagogies in a wide range of domains and learning environments.

The walkthrough will be followed by a hands-on session, in which all participants will take on the roles of readers, writers, and instructors. Through this exchange of roles, all will gain a comprehensive understanding of the functionality of the tool.

Participants will then choose one of two breakout sessions — one on pedagogy and theory or one on development and deployment — to discuss their more particular areas of interest in greater detail.
