Ways to Participate
As a teaching-focused knowledge base exploring the field of digital writing and connected learning, the aim of the Digital Is website is to ensure a friendly and collegial writing, publishing, and discussion space
We encourage you to join and participate.
Comment, share, and discuss: All content here at Digital Is can be shared and discussed. Join in by adding comments, sharing what you find, and/or starting a discussion of your own.
Post a blog: Use blog posts to share your work, provoke conversation, and share ideas with the larger community.
Browse resources and create your own: Resources are longer inquiries contributed by community members which can be curated into collections. Request to become a resource creator — this will allow you to draft, get feedback on, and publish new resources. Learn more.
Share and suggest collections: Collections are sets of resources, gathered and considered by NWP teacher leaders that explore one of the three key areas of Digital Is:
- Art/Craft: What are we learning about the art and craft of digital writing?
- Teach/Learn: What are we learning about the teaching and learning of digital writing?
- Provocations: What ideas provoke us to think in new ways about education and culture in the digital age?

Guidelines for Participation
General guidelines for participation include:
- Assume good intent.
- Practice and encourage active listening, reading, and viewing.
- Be as explicit as possible in your communication.
- Don’t assume—ask for clarification as needed.
- Build trust by doing what you say you will do.
