Educators participate in this five-week hands-on quasi-writer’s workshop to learn about widely-available digital tools that will help their students develop their inner writer. Resources include videos, pedagogic articles, lesson plans, projects. Strategies introduced range from conventional tools such as quick writes, online websites, and visual writing to unconventional approaches such as Twitter novels, comics, and Google Earth lit trips.
