The Hypothesis LMS app brings discussion directly to course content by enabling students and teachers to add comments and start conversations in the margins of their texts. Collaborative annotation engages students more deeply in course readings and gives teachers a view into how students are reading.
Introduction to Hypothesis
Hypothesis can be used to make student reading visible, active, and social. It will be demonstrated how teachers can use annotation-powered reading to empower student writing, helping students develop these foundational academic skills. In addition to sharing pedagogical best practices for collaborative annotation, users will learn how Hypothesis can be used with course readings in Canvas.
Creative Ways to Teach with Hypothesis
It will be demonstrated how multimedia can be used to incorporate different types of engagement in annotation assignments. Hypothesis provides a text editor that allows you to include links, images, text and videos in your and your students’ annotations. Tags can also be added to annotations as a way to categorize and organize annotations. This workshop will walk you through how to add multimedia and tags in annotations and offer ideas for using these features to increase engagement in your course readings.
