4T Virtual Conference on Digital Writing 2016
This collection features posts written by 4T Virtual Conference on Digital Writing (#4TDW) presenters from the 2016 conference. The conference focuses on the research, pedagogy, and tools of writing in digital spaces in the K-12 classroom. Throughout the virtual sessions, participants will explore the complexities of teaching writing in a digital age in which students potentially play the role of writer, multimedia creator, collaborator, publisher, reader/viewer/audience member, and critic during their online engagement both during and outside of school.
This four-day event also provides a space for dialogue between K-12 and university educators about the ways that the teaching of writing is enacted in schools, colleges, workplaces, and communities. The National Writing Project is a conference partner, and many of the presenters for the #4TDW are Writing Project teacher consultants and directors, facts that are reflected in the webinars’ design and presenters’ approach to teaching digital writing.
Each post in this collection discusses a pedagogical topic or approach related to digital writing that the blogger presented on during his or her webinar. In addition, there is a link to the recorded webinar and associated resources for that particular session.
