How Do Tech Tools Affect the Way Students Write?

How Do Tech Tools Affect the Way Students Write? | Toefl | Scoop.it

Many teachers reported that students are more willing to offer feedback and advice to peers through a shared document. And they approach the writing process more fluidly. “I have seen students more willing to go back and revise or improve their work in order to provide more clarity when using digital tools than when they are writing it on paper,”

Teaching Writing Skills

Teaching Writing Skills | Toefl | Scoop.it

Teaching writing skills can be quite challenging as each student has different needs. Some students are planning on taking advanced tests like the TOEFL, whereas others just want to use English during their travels abroad. In general, it's important to focus on encouraging writing skills that students feel they will actually use. It's a good idea to start off with short writing exercises, and then, if it makes sense for the class, move on to more advanced skills such as writing essays. Use a writing rubric to grade longer written assignments, as this will give students a broader overview of the skills they need to improve.

A cool little tool that easily makes a picture using your quote (either your own or someone else's). There are background templates (though not very many) to choose from. You only have to type the quote, click on Create and...voilà, you have an image which you can insert in your presentation to add a nice touch.

Above you can see an example made by me.
