Teaching literary reading through collaborative annotation

Would others be interested in a discussion of collaborative reading / annotation tools and pedagogy? Whether the goal is simply prompting reflective and engaged reading practices in general education students or developing a collaborative critical edition with graduate students, the idea of social reading is attractive. I would be interested in discussing and sharing ideas.  What tools (Wiki, Commentpress, ebook…) have folks used with success? What parameters or frameworks facilitate active learning and the creation of a useful “product?”  Is there a workable way to integrate mobile devices for in-class participation?

About sherwood

As a poetry scholar, I have researched spoken word poetry and created a scholarly website audibleword.org. I am interested in developing a project to apply T.E. I. schema in the transcription of spoken word poetry audio. At IUP, where I teach courses in born digital Elit and teaching with technology, I recently co-founded our D. H. C. I am also a faculty leader in emerging technologies at my institution. I found my first ThatCamp (MLA 2013/ Northeastern) generally useful and informative, apart from my particular project interests.
