(0 reviews)  

The connectivity of the internet and the latest digital technologies have opened vast new opportunities, formats, and audiences for writing. Digital writing involves more than just word processing an essay or punching out an e-mail message; students can blog, text message, chat online, or create narratives for multi-media productions.

Based on case studies, interviews with educational professionals, and a decade's worth of research, Because Digital Writing Matters offers proven strategies to equip students with the communications skills that will enable them to thrive in our information-rich, high-speed, high-tech culture. The book also:

  • Introduces the idea of digital writing as a mode of thinking, applicable to all grades and disciplines
  • Examines current trends, best practices, research, and issues in the teaching of digital writing
  • Offers practical solutions and models for planning, implementing, and assessing digital writing initiatives and writing programs
Because Digital Writing Matters reveals what teachers, administrators, and parents can do to meet the writing challenge in our nation's schools. 

Grades: P-12
