    Participants will learn about the basic functionality of digital annotation tools.
    Evaluate which digital annotation tools are best suited for use in their curriculum area.
    Common Core State Standards
    1.2 Reading Informational Text- Students read, understand, and respond to informational text—with an emphasis on comprehension, vocabulary acquisition, and making connections among ideas and between texts with a focus on textual evidence.
    1.3 Reading Literature- Students read and respond to works of literature—with emphasis on comprehension, vocabulary acquisition, and making connections among ideas and between texts with focus on textual evidence.

    "Moving away from print text to digital text has created some challenges to annotation that are easily addressed using a variety of 21st Century tools...Increasingly, there are more tools and options that allow the reader to annotate on any website and digital article found on the Internet...The real trick is to find the tool that works best for you and meets the needs of your learners. Whatever you select, it is important to coach students in the skill of annotation and to make that skill an integral part of day to day learning." Source "My Reflections on Annotations"
