Publishing and Empowering in the Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Focused on middle and high school teachers (all subjects), this interactive workshop will show participants how to get students enthused about writing through peer commenting (authentic audience), multimedia (images (flickr and vuvox) and podcasts (Audacity and ipadio)) and publication (publisher/pages and scribd). Participants will see what other teachers have done, experience multimedia writing from the student’s perspective and feel the compelling power of peer-to-peer commenting. This workshop will change how you view teaching writing in digital spaces. Participants will leave with a clear understanding of the power of writing in spaces where peer commenting is key and with a strategy to create student-empowered online space (solutions and link packet). Participants should bring laptops and cell phones.
