Layer as Resource

Last month I attended the Open Education Conference, also known as OpenEd, in Anaheim, California. OpenEd has grown into a marque conference that celebrates and pushes forward the development, use, and research of open educational resources (or OER), and appears increasingly interested in other aspects of open education, such as open educational practice and the…

Marginal Syllabus as OER and OEP

This post was originally published on the Marginal Syllabus. Yesterday, thanks to authors Dawn Reed and Troy Hicks, we launched the sixth Marginal Syllabus monthly flash mob via our emerging model of public and collaborative web annotation-as-conversation.

Annotating the News

What does annotating the news afford education, and why should designers and facilitators of learning engage the emerging trend of annotated news? I’ve been the reading the news a lot lately – no surprise there. And, given what’s happening in our world right now, you probably have been, too. If your experience has been anything like mine, perhaps…

Web Annotation as #DisruptiveMedia

Glimpsing the Impact of Open Annotation

Three times throughout this Spring semester, graduate learners in INTE 5320 Games and Learning are asked to reflect upon – and then blog about – their own learning. These learning reflections are semi-structured; I provide a few guiding questions alongside more open-ended and learner-initiated contributions. One of my prompts asks the following: How have the more open…

Annotation in the Open: Part 3

This is an open letter to my amazing graduate learners in INTE 5320: Games and Learning. My letter is motivated by recent debate about open annotation, free speech, abuse and harassment, and the challenges of expression and interaction in a networked and open web. As background, blog readers and/or graduate learners are encouraged to also read these articles – and…

Playful Annotation in the Open: Part 2

This post is the second in an ongoing series about playfulness in open web annotation. My comments are exploratory, driven by curiosity, and rooted in the experiences of INTE 5320 Games and Learning. I am grateful to the graduate learners of #ILT5320 whose annotation with the platform Hypothesis has greatly challenged my practices and conceptions of learning.…

(Re)Marking upon #ProfChat

This past Tuesday evening’s #profchat discussed open annotation in higher education. I had the honor and pleasure of serving as moderator. How come? I volunteered to moderate based entirely upon my rather nascent experiences learning with Hypothesis this semester in INTE 5320 Games and Learning. And in an effort to open – that is, to…
