Right now, most students type their writing individually on digital platforms and pass around laptops through a lengthy drafting and revision process. But digital composition tools provide teachers with great opportunities for leading students through process writing and using collaborative writing strategies to more effectively teach students how to talk, think and communicate as writers for continuous drafting and revision and stronger writing. This course will focus on helping participants develop the skills and knowledge necessary to take advantage of these great digital opportunities. Join us for an in depth training on using Google Apps for Education to improve your online writing instructional practice. Following a Writer’s Workshop model, participants will learn how to use Google Apps to compose, peer edit & revise and publish their own writing as well as how to lead students through the same activities.
