Now I might argue with #10 - overcommunicating can lead to the generous use of the "delete" key with end users. In spite of that, this is a good one to share with your iPad toting teachers!

Writing Rules! Advice from the Times on Writing Well

Writing Rules! Advice from the Times on Writing Well | English Education | Scoop.it

By AMANDA CHRISTY BROWN and KATHERINE SCHULTEN

 

"The Times has recently published a few features that we consider gifts to English teachers everywhere, including a summer “How To” section of the Sunday Book Review, and a new series, called “Draft,” on the art of writing, which features essays by grammarians, historians, linguists, journalists, novelists and others.

 

"Below, we collect some “rules” we’ve derived from these features and from other pieces on the Times site, along with links and related activities we hope writers at any stage will find fun or useful — or both."

VLEs still have their place for now as a stable baseline but these new emerging and possibly transcient technologies are like riding a bunch of wild horses, jumping from one to another as they stampede through the plain. There's not time to be an expert in a single technology anymore, just jack of all or master of some perhaps?

I love where the author compares a blog to a magazine when talking about the difference between older and newer games. The idea that games can continue (should continue) as a means of learning really resonates with me. It reminds me of the book "Finite and Infinite Games" which, if you like this article,  you might want to pick up and read. It'll change your whole mindset about interactions, learning, and playing.

Lou Salza's curator insight, November 28, 2013 11:14 AM

This is particularly important for students with language learning differences--Lou

 

Excerpt:

"...“There’s something about writing that is a link to your brain,” said Marissa Moss, author of the popular children’s book series Amelia’s Notebook. In the books, Moss takes on the persona of a little girl expressing her ideas about the world and people around her. The books are a combination of words and drawings and look free form – as though Amelia sketched them herself.

Taking a cue from Moss, teachers from Oak Knoll Elementary School in Menlo Park, Calif., decided to have their students keep notebooks in a similar style. The notebooks aren’t graded; rather, they’re a place of private, free expression. Karen Clancy and Andrea Boatright presented the project at the Innovative Learning Conference hosted by the Nueva School recently.

“They’re not used to being given permission to write about whatever they want,” Clancy said. But once her students realized that they really weren’t being graded and that they had freedom of expression, they eventually came to demand time to write.

Moss says writing without fear of consequences is key to developing a writer’s voice. “If you’re perfect you are guaranteed to not write a thing,” Moss said. “It’s like driving with one foot on the gas and one foot on the break.” She has developed some guides to help teachers coax students into using art and writing in their journals at the same time, as a way of flexing their visual thinking along with literacy...."

Collaboration can be both a formal structure for learning activity but also an underpinning framework for engagement and fostering life-long learning.  Learning networks are part the new learning ecosystem and should be recognised and supported.
