10 Ways To Use Technology To Teach Writing | Tech & Education | 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.

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.

We also hear names like TED, Codecademy, Khan Academy and Knowmia bandied about, not to mention the term "MOOC" and such brands as Udacity, Coursera, MITx, edX . . . What's it all about?
