    1. Students may be more willing to express their thoughts privately, or on a document that only the teacher can read. Social annotations, on the other hand, can function more like a class discussion, with students reading and responding to each other’s comments.

      I wonder if there are any statistics that show what students prefer?

    2. students practice annotation of digital texts outside of school. For example, students add filters, drawings, emojis, and writing to content they create or interact with in digital spaces such as Snapchat, Instagram, and YouTube.

      I feel like students do not understand that Snapchats, Instagram, Youtube are considered digital annotations because when students are using these technological tools, they are just having fun. In order to teach them that these tech tools are digital annotations, we as teachers need to help them connect the phrase "digital annotation" to these technology tools.

    1. So, 1994 provides a useful start-ing point for plotting the development of what many now consider to be the definition of educational technology — the use of Internet-related technology in education.

      I feel like 1994 is seen as the beginning because everyone was gaining computers on a mass scale, however, computer based learning was used well before 1994, but it was located in smaller numbers.

    2. One colleague dismissed my idea of a fully online course by declaring, “No one wants to study like that.”

      I feel like this is a normal response by people before new technology changes their minds and that becomes the norm. People are assuming that schools cannot use technology to help students understand, but then we become so accustomed to technology.
