Kidblog and Collaborize Classroom are two tools that work for me in language arts and book clubs.  What works for you?

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, January 4, 2013 5:09 PM

It was word processing that pulled me into technology.  I recall many English teachers telling me that word processing was going to ruin writing. 


And so it goes....

10 Types Of Writing For eLearning: The eLearning Coach: Instructional Design and eLearning

10 Types Of Writing For eLearning: The eLearning Coach: Instructional Design and eLearning | Scriveners' Trappings | Scoop.it

Not only do we need skills for expository, creative, persuasive and technical writing, but we often write about topics for which we know very little at first. Furthermore, our writing is expected to be motivating while clearly delivering concepts, procedures and facts.
Here you’ll find some brief guidelines that focus on each type of writing. Much of this writing is done in storyboards, so I didn’t include writing for storyboards as a separate type. What other types of writing for eLearning can you think of?

Creating Blog Posts 101

Creating Blog Posts 101 | Scriveners' Trappings | Scoop.it

A comprehensive article on the subject, "how to create a Blog post." It gives you the procedures to be adopted to produce structured and professional articles... an amazing post! [note: Martin Gysler]

 

Content

 

This is the most important part of you blog post because it’s what your visitors have come for, so if you want them to enjoy it and come back, you need to make sure it’s up to a good standard. Having amazing knowledge is one thing, but if you can’t manage to organize it in a way that is easily understandable to your readers, then it’s completely wasted.

 

Planning

 

Before you even open up your website, you need to get yourself some good fashion pen and paper and start taking notes. Even if you don’t know the exact title of your post, you should atleast know what it’s going to be about, so put that in a circle in the middle of the page and work out from there with a spider diagram...
