Nwp Digital Is Breakfast Slideshow

  1. 1. OUR MISSION The National Writing Project focuses  the knowledge, expertise, and  leadership of our nation’s educators  on sustained efforts to improve  writing and learning for all learners.
  2. 2. OUR VISION Writing in its many forms is the signature  means of communication in the 21st century.  The NWP envisions a future where every  person is an accomplished writer, engaged  learner, and active participant in a digital,  interconnected world.

  8. 8. …Educators need access to tools and  resources to share knowledge and  practice with other professionals,  interact with experts in their field, and  connect with their students’ families  and communities.” (Partnership for 21st Century Skills)

  11. 11. “ The best software is still  between your ears. Never  Glen forget that.  Bledsoe It’s the teacher who  decides how to use the  software. It takes  creativity, experience, and  a knowledge of your  students. ”
  12. 12. “ Teachers of writing are  central in the work of  reimagining literacy in the  digital age… Elyse Eidman-Aadahl Teachers need an  opportunity to look beyond  the initial change process  regarding the introduction  of tools and new media to  the moment when digital  simply is. ”
