Write About ~ digital writing for classrooms

Write About ~ digital writing for classrooms | English Language Learners in the Classroom | Scoop.it

description by Larry Ferlazzo:

 

"Write About provides many (and I mean many) images with writing prompts. Students can write their response and do an audio recording of it. Teachers can create virtual classrooms and provide individual written feedback to student writing. Student creations can be shared publicly or just with their classmates. Teachers can change prompts or upload their own photos.

 

"I think Write About is going to be an exceptional site, in particular for English Language Learners. It combines visual imagery, writing, speaking and listening – not to mention an authentic audience."
