When I bring my students to the library, they print countless articles that waster not only paper but also their time. In a truly digital world students should be able to save the articles in the cloud and then highlight/annotate directly on the file.
Thanks to Richard Bryne’s blog Free Technology for Teachers I learned about Marker.to. Marker.to will allow any user to highlight and then share the highlighted article. First you need to install a browser extension, then simply click on the icon to highlight any text on a website.
Annotating articles or webpages can highlight any important information and help students to better comprehend new materials. Another benefit to using Marker.to is that once you highlight an article you can share the page, which can beneficial on group assignments. Check out Marker.to today!
