Tools for Collaborative Writing - Jesse Stommel

Tools for Collaborative Writing - Jesse Stommel | AdLit | Scoop.it
There are many tools for working collaboratively, and this post is a review of those tools. But we must point out, here at the start, that the specific tools you use for collaborative writing are less important than how you use them. We’ve used Google Docs extensively but have just as deftly passed notes back and forth with paper and pencil, our jumbled analog cursors co-habiting the space of an 8 ½ by 11 sheet of looseleaf paper. What’s at issue here is a way of thinking — a way of processing ideas — that’s altogether more vulnerable, letting a virtual flurry of cursors inside our own thinking and writing processes.

Connecting a Classroom: Reflections on Using Social Media With My Students

Connecting a Classroom: Reflections on Using Social Media With My Students | AdLit | Scoop.it
Connected classrooms can reach beyond physical barriers to create conversations with people from other classrooms, cultures, and communities. Social media provides venues for students to share their stories both within and beyond the classroom. It also grants opportunities for them to hear stories from beyond their school. Finally, being connected helps students recognize the power of personal voice.


When I asked my students mid-year what they thought social media added to our classroom, they offered the following responses:


“Social media can expand our thoughts and ideas and connect us to what is going on in the rest of the world. It would be cool getting ideas that are actually present outside our community.” Michael A.


“We could use social media as a class to compare and contrast ideas on different projects…[it] could be used to begin discussions.” Mandy S.


“It is cool how we have posted pictures on Instagram of what we are doing in class...We should also look at other classes from other schools and see if they give us any good ideas about stuff we can do in class.” Daniel S.
