Incorporating technology into the classroom is beneficial for students. Here are some ideas for infusing your writing lessons with technology.
Writing Efficiency. The first step is the teach your students the basics. This is a good time to use old-fashioned paper, but if you’re fortunate to have a 1:1 computer classroom, students could also use their laptops or Chromebooks. Show students how to organize their essay writing as they organize any other activity.
Mind Mapping and Brainstorming. Encourage students to use apps to build mind maps and organize their content. Sites such as Popplet and Visual Einstein help students lay the foundation for writing an outline.
No matter the age, all students will learn that in order to be great at writing, one must practice.
