10 Ways To Use Technology To Teach Writing

10 Ways To Use Technology To Teach Writing | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Both high-tech innovations for learning and the inability of many American schoolchildren to write well have been major talking points in educational circles for quite some time, but oddly enough, one may offer a solution to helping remedy the other.

 

There are a variety of tech tools and methods out there for teaching writing that can make the process easier and more fun for both teachers and students. While not every high-tech way of teaching writing will work for every class or every student, there’s enough variety that there’s bound to be something for everyone.

 

Here, we offer just a few tech-focused ways to help students learn grammar, essay-writing, and, most importantly, why good writing is so important to their futures.

Hello with a Snow Day Twist

Hello with a Snow Day Twist | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

OK, so I thought I was the queen of wishing for snow days… But Mary Morris, a third-grade teacher at Rush Strong School in Strawberry Plains, Tennessee, has me way beat. She really, really, really wants not one, but two or maybe 23 snow days so she made a major plea for some of the white stuff by producing a high quality video parody set to Adele’s smash hit Hello—one that’s going viral since being released just four days ago.

You Totally Have Time for #HourOfCode | Venspired

You Totally Have Time for #HourOfCode | Venspired | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it
It’s here!  This coming week is the big Hour of Code.  You might be thinking, ‘Ain’t nobody got time for that?’ Or, maybe you’re like me, thinking, “Oh my gosh, this is my superbowl!”   Either way, whether you have an entire coding curriculum in your classroom, or have never even understood what the heck the coding revolution is all about, there is something out there for you to encourage your kiddos to try… no planning, no purchasing. Just an activity that will get it started.  There is likely a kid or ten in your classroom that thinks in the visually goodness way that coding speaks to. Trust me, often kids that are struggling in some areas, find success in coding.  Doesn’t that make it worth trying in the classroom?

Here are five ways to incorporate Hour of Code THIS week…. or the week after, whether you have one device or a class set.
