Interactive Writing: show what you know with media (Mapping Media to the Curriculum Book 1)
Every classroom teacher should provide interactive, digital spaces for writing with students. In this chapter, readers will learn what interactive writing can be in digital spaces, see examples of interactive digital writing, learn how to setup a classroom space for interactive writing, and practice the “workflow” of writing interactively with students online. Interactive digital writing involves the production and sharing of electronic texts which (in most cases) can be readily conveyed (transmitted), copied, connected (hyperlinked), commented on, and collaboratively constructed. This chapter highlights examples of student interactive writing, mobile apps as well as websites which support it, and workflows for students and teachers to use effectively in the classroom.
