Experimenting with Tech Tools to Improve Writing Feedback

Experimenting with Tech Tools to Improve Writing Feedback | Writing Tools Web 3.0 | Scoop.it

With these tools (many of which are included in this list), students are placed in charge of their learning. They engage in meaningful self-reflection, highlight according to criteria, and use academic language to critique their own work. The shift is significant. With Google tools, I can provide ongoing feedback while my students showcase digital responsibility and revise throughout the writing process.

Blogging in the 21st-Century Classroom

Blogging in the 21st-Century Classroom | Writing Tools Web 3.0 | Scoop.it

 

This year, I admitted a hard truth to myself. I wasn't having my students write enough. In an attempt to follow Kelly Gallagher’s advice that students should write more than we can assess, I decided to have them blog weekly.

One Assignment, Many Objectives

After giving students some practice and solidifying my ideas by talking to a colleague and past student, I developed this assignment. I tried to ensure that the assignment would:

Address multiple Common Core standardsHold students accountable while minimizing stressBe structured enough to provide clarity while giving freedom to experimentBe varied enough to keep students engagedGet students to write for multiple purposes

I love blogging and getting my students blogging too!  I have seen their writing flourish,  when they realise they are writing for a larger audience!  Their sense of humour, style and unique opinion comes to the fore!  Blogs are a wonderful way for young people to share their worldview!

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, June 29, 2013 2:37 PM

I find it hard to believe that blogging isn't part of every classroom wriitng workshop.

I use Word Clouds regularly on my VLE (Moodle) courses.  They do need explaining sometimes, which makes me think they are less valuable than some other graphics, but there are lots of ideas here I am going to try.
