The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing | K-12 Connected Learning | Scoop.it

These teachers see the internet and digital technologies such as social networking sites, cell phones and texting, generally facilitating teens’ personal expression and creativity, broadening the audience for their written material, and encouraging teens to write more often in more formats than may have been the case in prior generations.  At the same time, they describe the unique challenges of teaching writing in the digital age, including the “creep” of informal style into formal writing assignments and the need to better educate students about issues such as plagiarism and fair use.

I definitely see the need to "better educate students about issues such as plagiarism and fair use."

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, January 13, 2015 2:46 AM

This study provides insight into the issues teachers see, positive and negative, regarding the ways in which digital tools impact student writing. Overall, they see many benefits, but there are specific areas of concern.

I really like the advice given in this article.  Not reinventing something, using the objectives and easing into technology eases the stress of trying new technologies in class.  Good suggestions are also given.
