Gingko App - For collaborative writing

Gingko App - For collaborative writing | Technological Education and Safety | Scoop.it

Since Gingko is tree-based, one person can work on the overall organization, while a second is writing the main points of a particular section, and a third is taking those points and fleshing them out in a subsection.

Very good app for long documents. You could work in a 3 tree level, allowing you to conect between levels, add links, pics, etc... quite user-friendly.

Anne-Christin Tannhäuser's curator insight, February 25, 2014 5:52 AM

Need to try out this tool, looks exciting!

Now that I've discovered the wonderful Gingko App, my writing (and pre-writing) is not going to be the same again.

The 12 verb tenses and what they can be used for. please re-scoop as it is a must for people learning English grammar

Riley Cavanagh's curator insight, April 7, 2014 6:37 PM

Once you have finished reading this article, create two rows, either for 'Simple', 'Continuous', 'Perfect' or'Perfect Continuous' and using your own words fill these out with a Past, Present and Future tense sentences. 

 

e.g: I threw a ball yesterday - I threw a ball today - I will throw a ball tomorrow. 

 

Once you have done this, compare with a group and discuss the following:

1) Why this is an important piece of information for 21st Century Learners?

2) Why do verb tenses need to be considered in our writing?

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing | Technological Education and Safety | 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.

Could be useful for student's struggling with the language of set texts or even the wording of assignment tasks.

Gabi Witthaus's curator insight, September 3, 2013 4:47 AM

Interesting idea - this could be useful in EFL teaching or just for people who are reading in English as a second language and need a bit of help.

 

I tried it on the Adobe Connect website to see if it would demystify some of the 'Marketese' though, and it didn't help much! A sentence such as 'Powering mission-critical web conferencing solutions, end-to-end, on virtually any device' is full of everyday words which are being used in an unnecessarily obscure way. Which is why I'm in favour of simply writing in plain English (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plain_english).

 

On that subject, I recently discovered the absolutely wonderful Simple English Wikipedia (http://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page), which does just that.

This website is made for children that have a hard time understanding a word or sentence in the English language. By breaking down a word or difficult sentence into word that the child will be able to know.
