Whether translating the concise word choice of poetry to Twitter, the voice of persuasive essays to blogs, or the crafting of an engaging narrative into e-publishing, effective writing is at the heart of 21st century skills. In this eye-opening session, educators will learn how to bring out the inner Shel Silverstein and J. K. Rowling in students through intentional uses of innovative web and mobile apps. These activities, projects, and practices empowered the presenter’s students to win international digital storytelling awards and pen an Amazon best-seller! With student samples, adaptable rubrics, and the practical resources they need to get started, attendees will rush to integrate their new learning as soon as they return to school! Mac Lab.
