Published on

This presentation updates earlier ones on how to use the voice affordances of iPads and other mobile devices to make writing as well as teaching writing and giving feedback increasingly easier and more effective when students are using such devices.than when voice tools are not appropriately enlisted. The presenter learns more every day about how to use these tools in teaching, and here he conveys what he has learned in hopes it will help other teachers of writing whose students are challenged when trying to write effectively on mobile devices.
