"A lot of attention is given to STEM apps, and rightly so. But we shouldn’t forget about reading, writing, and the language arts. Let’s say you give your students a writing assignment. It could be a fictional story, a book summary, or, in our example below, a persuasive essay. Here are a series of mobile apps that your students can use for this assignment."

I tired this out and I think this is a great tool to integrate within the classroom. Perhaps on  Friday when there is some free time.

Charles Tiayon's curator insight, January 18, 2014 4:37 AM

That just may be the title of a new book I want to write! As many of you know I’ve been growing and changing and am becoming more aware of what motivates me to write and a recent conversation made me start to ponder the connection between spirituality and writing – or any work that we do.

Years ago I was talking to a writer about doing a writing workshop at our church together. “But I write fiction,” she said.

“So do I,” I replied. “Don’t you find the experience to be a spiritual one at times?”

She had to think for a second before nodding slowly. But I’m not sure she was completely convinced.

How do people define “spirituality” (vs “religion” – or perhaps for some it’s the same thing?) Do we see it as separate from our “regular” life? If so, why? If we have integrated it into our everyday experiences, does that include writing or other creative endeavors, as well as work, play, relationships? Should spirituality be separate from these things, practiced separately, and not brought into the creative process, workplace, or our relationships with colleagues, family and friends?

I have a lot of questions!
