I Annotate 2021
the conference for open annotation practices and technologies
Monday 21–Friday 25 June 2021
I Annotate 2021 was held as an all-virtual conference during Monday 21–Friday 25 June 2021, restarting this annual gathering of educators, scholars, researchers, publishers, journalists, fact-checkers, and technologists engaged with open annotation practices and tools after a pause during 2020. Given social annotation's dramatic growth during the massive migration to remote teaching and learning in the pandemic, #ianno21 had a special focus on annotation in education. In keeping with this year's theme — reading together — the touchstone across all sessions was how more and more people are coming together through social annotation to share ideas, ask questions, and make connections.

Social Hours: Annotate This Party With Annotation Show-and-Tell
Got a favorite digital annotation or one in the margins of a book from your shelf? How about an annotation from the wide world outside books? What do you like about it? How does it help you understand and/or question a text? How does it help you connect to other people and ideas? Bring your annotations to show-and-tell, or just come to hear from others. Feel free to dress up — as a text of your choice, as a character from a book, or as something you’d leave in the margins of a text — human emoji, anyone? However you want to interpret the phrase “Annotate this Party,” take this opportunity to kick back and have fun connecting with other #ianno21 participants.
