The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing | Learning, Education, and Neuroscience | 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.

Pamela D Lloyd's insight:

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.

Citelighter: Research, Write & Cite

Citelighter: Research, Write & Cite | Learning, Education, and Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Many teachers are ending their semesters with large scale assignments that require digital research.
Pamela D Lloyd's insight:

Even at the college level, I find that students often leave citation preparation for the end of the writing cycle, after they've written a research paper. But, this just makes more work and opens them to accusations of plagiarism, as it's harder to identify the source of the material, once it's been integrated into the paper. Even when each use of someone else's material has been identified inline, if the correct citations on the References or Works Cited pages are missing or incorrect, the student is going to have difficulty pulling the source material together. Using a tool such as the one described here, may help students and other researchers to avoid citation headaches.
