Teaching Writing Online
Resources to support "Teaching Writing Online" workshop for grades 9-12 educators.
This Canvas webinar will show how collaborations are actively engaging students and how students can work together online. This allows students to have more flexibility, use multimedia, and have greater interactivity. Online peer reviews give students the power to have their projects reviewed at any time, allowing others to give feedback sooner, and providing more time to revise projects. Learn how these tools are being used.
Collaborative annotation helps people connect to each other and what they’re reading, even when they’re keeping their distance. To help out, we’ve waived all fees for educational institutions during 2020.
"Parlay has done a beautiful job of pulling together a thoughtful suite of tools for conducting class discussions. Start by choosing a discussion topic from their library: These contain readings and videos to give background information so that students come to the discussion well-prepared. Then students submit written responses to the prompt and respond to one another in writing. Finally, the class can conduct a live roundtable discussion, using Parlay to track and facilitate their participation. When the discussion is over, the teacher gets a report to see who participated and how." - Cult of Pedagogy Review
Prism is a tool for "crowdsourcing interpretation." Users are invited to provide an interpretation of a text by highlighting words according to different categories, or "facets." Each individual interpretation then contributes to the generation of a visualization which demonstrates the combined interpretation of all the users. We envision Prism as a tool for both pedagogical use and scholarly exploration, revealing patterns that exist in the subjective experience of reading a text.
Discord is the easiest way to communicate over voice, video, and text, whether you’re part of a school club, a nightly gaming group, a worldwide art community, or just a handful of friends that want to hang out.
Floop was designed to support the way you work and teach, so you use all your existing assignments, paper or digital, on any device. Because students can submit photos of their work, in addition to PDF and Google docs, sheets, and slides, you can facilitate feedback on a variety of assignments. Math tests from home, mixed media paintings, circuits for digital electronics, drafts of essays, science lab notebook entries - all are fair game.
