What does it look like when young people are writing on their own terms, in spaces outside of school?

After last year's inaugural Connected Educator Month, participating teachers argued “every month should be connected educator month.” And here at NWP Digital Is, where we explore digital literacies and connected learning, we couldn't agree more. In this collection, explore ways to connect during Connected Educator Month and to stay connected throughout the year!

What does being a connected educator mean to you?

This collection pulls together the research by Josyln Young.

We have assembled this collection so that teachers may know the territory of machine scoring writing and, when and if their school system considers adopting one of these machine-reading services, they may act appropriately.
