NWP Crafting Digital Writing Webinar

Thanks to my many friends and colleagues who joined in our conversation yesterday about my new book, Crafting Digital Writing, as well as the professional development experiences that they are creating this summer around the book.

It is both exciting and humbling to know that so many other writing project sites are engaged in these ideas, helping teachers think critically and creatively about how to craft intentional pieces of digital writing with their students.

Even though Jenn Cook had some trouble joining in, and Paul lost his connection due to poor internet speed at the school in which he was leading a PD session (which certainly leads to more important conversations about access and equity across America’s schools and communities), I felt like the conversation kept moving along in thoughtful productive ways. I really appreciate how Jenn Wolfe and Melissa Wilson were willing to share their work with teachers and students in greater detail when we were figuring out the technical difficulties.



For more on the book, and the conversations, please join in the Google+ community for the book, and stay tuned for information about more conversations coming up in July on Teachers Teaching Teachers.
