Engaging Students with Digital Writing

  1. 1. engaging students with writing in the digital age
  2. 2. why english matters “It's hard to imagine what other department is better suited to helping us prepare, in practical and profound ways, for our future, for the highly unpredictable changes in how we read, write, and communicate that are reshaping school and work in the Information Age.” Cathy Davidson, Duke University https://www.hastac.org/
  3. 3. writing, technology and teens
  4. 4. writing, technology and teens Even though teens are heavily embedded in a tech-rich world, they do not believe that communication over the internet or text messaging is writing.
  5. 5. writing, technology and teens Even though teens are heavily embedded in a tech-rich world, they do not believe that communication over the internet or text messaging is writing. Teens believe good writing is important to success in life.
  6. 6. writing, technology and teens Even though teens are heavily embedded in a tech-rich world, they do not believe that communication over the internet or text messaging is writing. Teens believe good writing is important to success in life. Teens are motivated to write by relevant topics, high expectations, an interested audience and opportunities to write creatively.
  7. 7. writing, technology and teens Even though teens are heavily embedded in a tech-rich world, they do not believe that communication over the internet or text messaging is writing. Teens believe good writing is important to success in life. Teens are motivated to write by relevant topics, high expectations, an interested audience and opportunities to write creatively. Teens believe that the writing instruction they receive in school could be improved.

  10. 10. writing, technology and teens Non-school writing, while less common than school writing, is still widespread among teens. Multi-channel teens and gadget owners do not write any more – or less – than their counterparts, but bloggers are more prolific
  11. 11. writing, technology and teens Non-school writing, while less common than school writing, is still widespread among teens. Multi-channel teens and gadget owners do not write any more – or less – than their counterparts, but bloggers are more prolific As tech-savvy as they are, teens do not believe that writing with computers makes a big difference in the quality of their writing.
  12. 12. writing, technology and teens Non-school writing, while less common than school writing, is still widespread among teens. Multi-channel teens and gadget owners do not write any more – or less – than their counterparts, but bloggers are more prolific As tech-savvy as they are, teens do not believe that writing with computers makes a big difference in the quality of their writing. Teens enjoy non-school writing, and to a lesser extent, the writing they do for school.

  27. 27. microblogging How I learned to love Twitter Margaret Atwood “So what's it all about, this Twitter? Is it signalling, like telegraphs? Is it Zen poetry? Is it jokes scribbled on the washroom wall? Is it John Hearts Mary carved on a tree? Let's just say it's communication, and communication is something human beings like to do.” http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2010/apr/07/love-twitter-hooked-fairies-garden
  28. 28. blended learning “Blended learning is more effective than either face to face or online learning by themselves.” “Between online and face to face instruction, online is at least as good and may even have the advantage in terms of improving student achievement and potentially expanding the amount of time (and quality time) students spend learning.” Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning [The US Department of Education 2009]
  29. 29. pedagogy | learning networks Beyond the institutionalised logic of the school towards the network logic of the learning community. Learning institutions rethinking the possibilities around what can be learnt, where learning can happen and who is involved in the learning process.
