Self-Paced Course for Educators: Writing Reboot EdTech for Student Writers

I am so excited to officially announce today that my new self-paced course Writing Reboot: EdTech for Student Writers Across Content Areas with Monica Burns, is open for enrollment! We’ve had a few educators take a sneak peak at the course earlier this fall but now my brand new, self-paced course is available for any educator to join.

Are you looking to strengthen student writers in every subject area? Are you looking to make the most of the digital tools in your school? Are you looking for ways to help your students prepare to write across multiple text types using different devices?

 

In my new self-paced course from Participate, you’ll learn how to leverage the power of digital tools to create experiences that empower writers of all ages. From brainstorming strategies, to moving beyond pencil and paper, this course will explore how students can make the most of whatever technology is in your school to write, create and publish in every subject area!

You can move at your own pace throughout the school year, to watch the how-to videos, listen to the podcasts, read through the downloadables and take part in the action items and assignments at anytime. As soon as you finish you’ll earn the Writing Reboot badge from Participate.
