Engage Students as Writers through Digital Tools

This was first presented at ISTE 2011 and revised for COTA 2012 Summer Conference and expanded for multiplatform.

Description
Empower students to grow as writers. Learn about 10+ tools that will engage hesitant writers in creating and publishing their writing.

Purpose and Objectives
The purpose of this session is to give 10 valuable integration tools. This is not a lab situation; however as a BYOL, participants who bring a computer with them will have the opportunity to use it throughout the presentation. The intention it to provide introduction to concepts and sample tools for you to explore to engage writers. While I am presenting on a Mac, in this handout is a table of alternatives.

The concepts will be discussed with examples for specific grade levels; however the tools are flexible to be used for a broad range.
The following are core to the workshop: Storyboards, peer-editing,book making, digital images, making photographs, blogs, wikis, podcasts, mind mapping, movie making and word processing.
