  36. 36. Tools to explore  Webspiration  Inspiration/kidspiration  AppWriter  Pulse Pen  DraftBuilder
  37. 37. Drafting While prewriting activities and tools can assist the writer during initial drafting, the writer must still juggle: ◦ Planning what to say and how to say it ◦ Selecting words, sentences, and text structures ◦ Producing the text ◦ Monitoring his or her writing in order to revise “on the fly”
  38. 38. Digital Planning & Organization Tools Drafting Supports ◦ Word or phrase “ideas” from prewriting can serve as sentence starters or provide vocabulary for drafting ◦ Digital outline files can be used to generate a first draft when more extensive written information was produced during planning & organization ◦ Drafting support can be done through ‘copy and paste’ or ‘click and drag’ or an “auto create” function 38
