Educational technology broadens the possibilities of the typical research paper. Teachers should now ask new questions, like: Can my students share their research with a larger audience through a blog, website or video? Can students collaborate on research papers? Can students collaborate on a Google Slides presentation to teach their peers?
This is not to say the research paper is a thing of the past. Ed tech and Google Apps for Education have improved academic writing and collaboration for both teachers and students, such as using Google Classroom, where teachers can watch students work on assignments in real time and make comments.
There are many new and exciting ways for teachers to facilitate discussions, and enable students to practice ethical and academic writing. Here are some GAFE-friendly tools you can use for your next evidence-based writing lesson.
