Every year for the past 48 years, Phi Delta Kappa and Gallup have done a Poll On Education issues (you can see my posts from previous years here). This year’s poll results were just released, though I haven’t had time to thoroughly review them yet.
eMargin is a free tool developed by Birmingham City University in the United Kingdom.
You can upload any text and have students annotate it, and the same text can be annotated by a closed group. In addition, you can “upload” a web address and annotate it, as well. The lay-out can be a bit funky with websites, but it’s still workable.
I did this interview/presentation on English Language Learners and the Common Core (based on my latest book) with the Learning First Alliance earlier this summer. Unfortunately, they used the Blab platform to record the interview, and Blab just closed down.
Fortunately, they were able to migrate the video to YouTube, so here it is (I have since installed a much better webcam on my computer ).
