Free Technology for Teachers: ProjectWriter - A New Way to Assign and Manage Group Writing Projects

Free Technology for Teachers: ProjectWriter - A New Way to Assign and Manage Group Writing Projects | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it

ProjectWriter is a new offering from the folks at BoomWriter. The purpose of ProjectWriter is to provide you with a platform through which you can develop and manage group writing projects for your students.

Otherwise, you can assign a number of sections, and each group member writes a section, and group members vote on who's paper should be submitted for each section. I like the second option-some students might be better at writing about one topic over another.
