I just read a post by Marian Thacher, who shared how a teacher is having his students do online highlighting and commenting on articles they find through the Diigo service.
It’s an excellent idea. Unfortunately, you have to download Diigo, which is a problem for school computers.
However, it got me thinking about a couple of online highlighting and annotating web applications — Fleck and Jump Knowledge. I’ve posted about them before (Fleck) and how my students can highlight and comment online about their favorite sites on my webpages.
They can certainly do the same thing with articles. I’m going to give it a try.
