THIS IS AWESOME: “Crowdsourcing Interpretation” with Prism

Check out this neat tool that allows students to collaborate and analyze different texts. A friend recommended it to me and I just spent a bit of time playing. Seems like it has incredible value given the renewed emphasis on the study of primary sources in the Social Studies classroom. I plan on using it as a way into a discussion of the opening scene of Gatsby in American Studies. I will definitely be blogging more about my experiences later, but thought it might be of interest to some of you as you prepare for the school year.

Check out the Prism | Demo.
