Twenty-one good reasons you should do NaNoWriMo this year.

Twenty-one good reasons you should do NaNoWriMo this year. | Web Learning | Scoop.it
NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. The name is a little deceptive as it is actually an international initiative that encourages people to try and write 50,000 words in one month. This averages out at about 1667 words a day. While there is the word "novel" in the name, it is generally accepted that you can tackle any writing challenge in the month; it doesn't have to be a novel. What's more important is that you write, you write quickly (i.e. without going back and editing) and you aim to get as close to 50,000 words as you can. Of course this doesn't mean your project will end at 50,000 words, but that is the goal for November.

MITO: Não posso participar no NaNoWriMo porque só gosto de escrever à mão

MITO: Não posso participar no NaNoWriMo porque só gosto de escrever à mão | Web Learning | Scoop.it
Uma vez que a contagem de palavras tem de ser validada pelo contador oficial do NaNoWriMo, quem escreve à mão e não tem intenção de teclar as 50 mil palavras manuscritas, deverá considerar-se excluído à partida, certo?
Errado.

Este é apenas mais um mito associado ao NaNoWriMo.
Na verdade, quem apenas manuscreve os textos pode participar no NaNoWriMo de uma forma totalmente apoiada pela organização do evento.Para saber como, basta clicar aqui.

The Relationship between Participation and Discussion

The Relationship between Participation and Discussion | Web Learning | Scoop.it
My interest in participation and discussion continues. How do we use them so that they more effectively promote engagement and learning? A couple of colleagues and I have been working on a paper that deals with how we define participation and discussion. (Side note: If you want to challenge your thinking about an aspect of teaching and learning, consider focused conversations with colleagues and the purposefulness of a writing project. I have said it before and will likely say it again: We have so much to learn from and with each other.) One of the new insights that has come to me out of this collaboration involves the relationship between participation and discussion. I used to think of them as being related, but I didn’t see them as interrelated.

When Women Stopped Coding

When Women Stopped Coding | Web Learning | Scoop.it
Mark Zuckerberg. Bill Gates. Steve Jobs. Most of the big names in technology are men.

But a lot of computing pioneers, the ones who programmed the first digital computers, were women. And for decades, the number of women in computer science was growing.

But in 1984, something changed. The number of women in computer science flattened, and then plunged.

Mais um mito sobre o NaNoWriMo: NÃO ESCREVO ROMANCES; NÃO POSSO PARTICIPAR | Web Learning | Scoop.it
A organização do NaNoWriMo quer incentivar as pessoas a escreverem mais, independentemente do formato em que o fazem, e por isso mesmo criou uma categoria para quem pretende participar escrevendo outros tipos de ficção (micro-ficção, contos, etc.) e até obras de não-ficção (como biografias ou ensaios) e deu um nome verdadeiramente cool a esses participantes: NaNo Rebels. :)
