NWeLearn 2019 has ended
Welcome to NWeLearn 2019! We are excited about his annual event. Here is some housekeeping information to navigate the event:
  • The conference is hosted in the Convention Center, a separate building next to the Riverhouse Hotel. You can walk there from the hotel by taking one of the paths that go under MT Washington Drive or drive directly there.
  • The Convention Center has two levels. Meals and main sessions will be held in the lower level and the breakout sessions will be held in the main or 1st floor.
  • Restrooms are in the 1st Floor across from Cascadia B.
  • The Thursday night, Networking & Hors D’oeuvres, will be held right after the last Thursday breakout session in the main entrance space by the fireplace on the 1st floor.
Feel free to ask any questions, post your experiences in the Slack Community site, nwelearn.slack.com, and upload your pictures to the NWeLearn Conference 2019 Google Photos site.

This presentation will look at the latest online collaborative annotation tools. These tools represent a significant advance in our ability to share and analyze electronic texts. Students can highlight, annotate, share, and discuss a text from any browser, in any document on the internet. These new affordances allow teachers and instructional designers to design new kinds of assignments that allow students to make connections between documents, one another, and new knowledge. Examples in the presentation will include recent projects using the free online "Hypothesis" software, such as the Annotating Englebart Project. The presentation will be shared live and will annotated live by participants.
