Digital Tools Enhance Collaborative Learning
Professor Emma Teng used social annotation tools, such as Perusall, for students to compare how a narrative is told across different genres. Students could share their thoughts and receive input from their peers and instructor while reviewing text, images, or videos, rather than completing these tasks alone. Through other annotation tools, such as StoryMapJS or ArcGIS StoryMaps, students could also create a geographic map of the events occurring in the narrative. Useful in both remote and residential settings, these types of digital tools enable the class community to engage with and learn from one another.
