Tomorrow night — Tuesday, January 23rd from 8:00 to 9:00 CST — I will be facilitating the #WisEduChat with a focus on “Teaching Digital Writing.” Here are the questions we will explore over the hour:
- Q1: Thinking about writing instruction in your classroom, what’s going well? What’s puzzling you? What do you want to try?
- Q2: Now, let’s talk about digital writing. How would you define it? How does it compare to typical “schoolish” kinds of writing?
- Q3: How does digital writing change our work with students?
What changes with our curriculum, instruction, and assessment?
- Q4: When assessing digital writing, what are we looking at? Process? Product? Quality of writing? Quality of digital workmanship?
- Q5: What are some of the digital writing tools that you are using…
or that you want to try?
- Q6: What specific assignment ideas do you have in mind? What genres, audiences, and purposes (as well as tools) might you explore?
Also, I’m pleased to note that I will be in Wisconsin at least twice in the year ahead. This conversation via Twitter will be a good one to get things started!
