Power Up and Enhance the Writing Process With Technology

Writing is a critical and powerful learning activity. Not only is it a very cognitively complex task, but it also forces us to think deeply about a topic in order to make sense of the information we’re trying to communicate. It helps us process our learning at a deeper level, and it can be a great metacognitive strategy that allows us to pause and reflect on our learning process. It’s an active learning strategy that can be successfully integrated into every subject area and grade level, and when we infuse the process with technology, we can make this powerful learning strategy even stronger.

In this collection, we’ll explore five stages in the writing process. For each stage, we’ll examine tech-infused strategies that you can use to power up and enhance student writing in your classroom.
