You are invited to join teachers across the globe for a special interactive Teachers Teaching Teachers (TTT) webcast, titled "Teaching the New Writing: Exploring the Collaborative Nature of Writing and Technology in the Classroom," sponsored by the National Writing Project Technology Initiative.
As educators move forward into the terrain of digital literacy and learning with their students, part of the challenge is balancing the innovation of new technology and the accountability of assessment.
The new book Teaching the New Writing: Technology, Change, and Assessment in the...
explores these balancing acts through case studies of elementary through university-level classrooms where teachers are integrating technology with writing and where the assessment of the digital work and student learning is explored.
Chapter authors Dawn Reed, high school teacher and teacher-consultant with the Red Cedar Writing Project
; Troy Hicks, associate Professor and director of the Chippewa Writing Project
; and Bryan Crandall, high school teacher and a teacher-consultant with the Louisville Writing Project, will share examples of their classroom practices to prompt a discussion about audience in writing using digital technology. In addition, Marva Solomon will be joining us to talk about her work with a small group of struggling elementary school writers. The title of her chapter is “True adventures of Students “Writing Online: Mummies, Vampires and schnauzers, Oh My!”
