Plinky

Plinky | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Writing is one of the key literacy learning skills.


For many learners it can also be one of the most challenging.


The way learning Providers teach 'writing' has alot to do with their learners attitude; if they can find engaging and collaborative ways to teach writing then, their learners writing performance will be enhanced.


One strategy is to use technology.


For learners, generating ideas is often the most difficult phase of their writing process.


This is where Plinky can help.


Every day Plinky provides a new prompt (like a question, or a challenge), and everyone gets a chance to answer.


Users can...
- add photos, maps, playlists and more.
- easily share their Plinky answers on Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Tumblr, and most major blogging services.

 

In their words...
"We know you've got something interesting to say. Plinky is here to help you say it in a fun and compelling way."

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.
