Digital Tools for Writing Instruction
Student Success Week 2015 | Exploring the Intersection of Writing with Technology
Teachers face significant challenges in getting students prepared with 21st century skills, especially when it comes to writing. The question that consistently comes up is: How can technology actually support teachers and their writing instruction in the classroom?
Join Kristine Pytash, Richard Ferdig and Timothy Rasinski as they provide an overview of digital tools that answer these challenges and facilitate important pedagogical practices related to writing -- such as how to instruct students to address purpose, audience and organization in their works. Additionally, our presenters will discuss tools for new and exciting forms of practice, particularly collaborative writing and multimodal composition. Our audience will come away with resources, materials and helpful criteria they can use to select the best digital tools for their classrooms.
