10 Ways To Use Technology To Teach Writing

10 Ways To Use Technology To Teach Writing | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

Both high-tech innovations for learning and the inability of many schoolchildren to write well have been major talking points in educational circles for quite some time, but oddly enough, one may offer a solution to helping remedy the other.

 

There are a variety of tech tools and methods out there for teaching writing that can make the process easier and more fun for both teachers and students. While not every high-tech way of teaching writing will work for every class or every student, there’s enough variety that there’s bound to be something for everyone.

 

Here are a few tech-focused ways to help students learn grammar, essay-writing, and, most importantly, why good writing is so important to their futures.

Can Students ‘Go Deep’ With Digital Reading?

Can Students ‘Go Deep’ With Digital Reading? | Technology and language learning | Scoop.it

While ever more schools adopt textbooks and student reading materials to digital readers like iPads and Chromebooks, some recent research suggests students may comprehend more from reading print.

Mary Starry's curator insight, September 12, 11:24 AM

As students buy fewer textbooks and utilize more e-books provided by institution purchase, such as PharmacyAccess, this needs to be kept in mind.  Do we need to provide paper handouts of the key points? Should students take notes or create mind-maps of the key points to help further reinforce what they are reading electronically? There is also new studies highlighting the importance of note taking. Faculty may need to develop new approaches to achieve the deeper learning desired in our electronic device world.

Helen Teague's curator insight, September 13, 6:40 AM

This is a thorough treatment of the subject and is another reason to have several options for students to have choices of both the methods and deliverables of their learning.

Larissa Bonthorne's curator insight, September 13, 6:44 AM

Interesting article about the differences between digital and print reading.

Disponer de una conexión a internet  nos permite aprender online cualquier idioma que no sea el tuyo propio (inglés, francés, alemán...).
