The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing | ELA in the Modern Era | 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.

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.

What is "Close" Reading?

What is "Close" Reading? | ELA in the Modern Era | Scoop.it
Close reading is the idea that students will re-read certain texts in order 

Close reading is purposefully reading a text while paying attention to the author’s word choice, sentence structure, and devices used to embed layers of meaning within. It involves reading the same text multiple times, each time studying a different aspect to encourage the reader to analyze what and why the author did what he did to communicate the point.

Claire Williams's curator insight, October 8, 2013 12:43 PM

Close reading is when someone mostly students reread text to better understand it. Although this is a very straight forward topic tis article suggests that each time oyu read the text oyu search for differnt things so you can better understand what the autor is trying to say.

Judy Beemer's curator insight, October 18, 2013 11:01 AM

The questions to ask when doing a second reading are especially helpful.

Three significant concepts of formative assessment: (1) it is student focused, (2) it is instructionally informative, and (3) formative assessment is outcomes based.

Jeroen Bottema's curator insight, September 7, 2013 9:44 AM

"This chapter looks at the essential principles of formative assessment and provides a preview of best practice. Our focus here is both the content and context of formative assessment: its basic elements and some of the reasons it has risen to prominence and gained support as an effective means of improving student learning."
