Classroom Salon: Social highlighting for education

Michael Feldstein writes about Classroom Salon, a tool with three features useful “for teaching critical reading and writing” that has three features.

1. “participants can see everybody else’s highlights and, more importantly, choose to filter by the number of highlights on a given text.”

2. “Classroom Salon makes it possible to tag highlights and annotations.”

3. “the ability to ask ‘document questions.’”

Feldstein reviews this tool in some detail, and it’s worth reading and thinking about.
