How much technology is the “right” amount? How do we reconcile our traditional teaching practices with a digital world? Here’s a list of common technologies available for the writing classroom and some links to help use them more effectively.
Activities: In this series of posts, we look the types of course activities that benefit most from technology, and then examine the pros and cons of the different technologies available. (For a quick overview, please see our GoogleDocs Presentation.) In particular, we’ll be looking at the following types of projects.
- Tracking Assignments
- Discussion Boards
- Group Projects
- In-Class Activities
- Online Trajectory
- Peer Assessment
Technologies: Here are the classroom technologies we’ll be considering.
- ReggieNet (Illinois State only)
- Blogger and WordPress
- Paper (yes, paper)
