Abstract

We designed the IdeaMagnets tool to bridge Knowledge Forum, an established knowledge-building environment, with the open web via web annotation. With the tool, we conducted a classroom intervention in science classes where students studied energy in connection with public discourse on the Green New Deal. Preliminary findings suggested that students developed a culture of working with public sources via the IdeaMagnets tool and incorporated their collective web annotations to improve ideas in Knowledge Forum. This work has strong implications for the design of future knowledge-building environments.
