Digital Writer's Workshop Utilizing Technology to Improve Writing


You don't write because you want to say something. You write because you have something to say. [F. Scott Fitzgerald]

Join us for a year long study of how to utilize technology to improve your students' writing skills. We will use Troy Hicks' "The Digital Writing Workshop" to support our study of how to use digital tools to:

  1. Research to find authentic purposes for writing.
  2. Create and collaborate in real-time and outside the classroom.
  3. Confer with students.
  4. Improve feedback and revision.
  5. Partner with classrooms to collaborate and share published works.
  6. Design different ways to publish writing.
