Digital Writing: Teaching Writing in the 21st Century

The Digital Writing Workshop is a new book about using technology to teach writing by Troy Hicks, Director of the Chippewa River Writing Project at Central Michigan University. Technology can be a powerful tool when integrated into the workshop model of student choice, revision, and author study that values both the writing process and the final product. Troy also facilitates The Digital Writing Workshop NING, a companion to the book, for teachers interested in learning more about teaching digital writing in an online community.

The Plymouth Writing Project will be offering two special focus sessions this summer on using technology to teach writing: Exploring Technology and Writing and Writing Instruction and Multimedia. Information and registration forms can be found on the Plymouth Writing Project website.
