13 Stunning Places to Publish Student Art and Writing

13 Stunning Places to Publish Student Art and Writing | Going Digital | Scoop.it

by Jennifer Gonzalez

 

"There’s something about having our work seen by strangers that makes us take it up a notch. And while displaying writing and art in the school halls or a teacher-made book can accomplish that feeling to some degree, publication in a more “official” vehicle carries more weight.

"These publications are the real deal — online and print periodicals that showcase work by student artists and writers, some as young as age five. Many are run by a staff that is partly or completely made up of students. Each one is beautifully designed and features high-quality work. Some even pay. If you know a student who aspires to become a serious writer or artist, encourage them to take the next step and start working toward publication."

Great Tech for Online Writing and Blogging

Great Tech for Online Writing and Blogging | Going Digital | Scoop.it
Being able to write clearly is an essential skill for all students. It can be hard for kids to pen what they mean, though. With simple online writing tools and blogs like these, students get practice writing informally in settings that aren't too daunting. Get them writing with their peers and they may soar even more.

Duolingo For Schools Is Free, And It May Change The EdTech Market | Going Digital | Scoop.it

Sixty million people are now signed up to use Duolingo–the simple, gamified, adaptive language teaching app for smartphones and web browsers. Twenty million of them are currently active users. According to Duolingo, that means there are more people using the platform to learn languages than there are in the entire U.S. public school system.

Duolingo remains free of charge. No advertisements. No subscriptions. No upsells. No in-app purchasing.
