Promoting Writing Proficiency in the World Language Classroom - Calico Spanish

Promoting Writing Proficiency in the World Language Classroom - Calico Spanish | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

"During Thursday night’s session of #langchat, participants discussed various interactive ways to develop students’ world language writing skills. The discussion topics included ways to include all types of writing from creative writing to analysis and discussion. By using various methods such as online tools, group discussion and word games, teachers are encouraging and incorporating imaginative thought."

(Im)Material girls living in (im)material worlds: Identity curation through time and space | NWP Digital Is | Internet 2013 | Scoop.it

"NWP is proud to be a supporter of Global Conversations in Literacy Research, a free and open-access series of webinars with literacy researchers world-wide.

 

The Digital Is community might be particularly interested in the next webinar, January 20 at 3:00 p.m. ET, with Julia Davies from the University of Sheffield. Julia's presentation draws on a project looking at the role of Facebook in the lives of a group of fashion conscious trainee hairdressers living in a city in the north of England. 

 

The research has an ethnographic texture; Dr. Davies, shared in the young women’s Facebook spaces and took part in their conversations. Facebook was the lens through which she viewed their lives and through which she traced interactions and events."

sarspri's insight:

The National Writing Project (NWP) is a fine bunch of folks, documenting all kinds of ways to express oneself (both teachers and students) via text and in combination with other digital modes of expression and communication.

TitanPad

TitanPad lets people work on one document simultaneously


Via Anthony Beal, Juergen Wagner
sarspri's insight:

The "no account sign-up needed" element is a key distinguishing factor for TitanPad.  Plus the playback feature, which is great for watching a (double or triple time) digital record of a learner's writing process unfold after the fact.  The latter distinguishes it from Google Docs for particular types of tasks.

 

This is a solid version of what used to be EtherPad.

I am rehearsing about collaborative writing for a workshop I will give soon. Surfing the net, I came across Many People, Many Minds: Collaborative Writing in the ESL Classroom – a master’s thesis by Morten Oddvik which seems very interesting and would like to share with you.
