NWP Annual Meeting 2014: Inspirational!
The sessions on Wednesday were also stellar. I felt surrounded by like-minded educators who believe in authentic teaching and writing who will advocate for their profession in the face of adversity!
I am invigorated and energized. I don't know about the rest of you, but... Wow!
I had the chance to see WriteLab and the creators explaining how this is a piece of writing software designed by NWP-minded people with the student writer in mind. It was great to hear about this non-released beta and to see the minds of the people behind the magic of the algorithms. I was lucky enough to chat with Don McQuade after the session, and I am further convinced they are headed in the right (write) direction.
Thanks NWP for all you do!
