Guidelines for Resource Creators
The NWP Digital Is website provides a collection of teaching-focused resources that explore what we as educators are learning about writing and the teaching of writing in the digital age. Resources may address elements of the art and craft of writing in digital environments or may explore new issues in the teaching and learning of writing. Resources may also raise provocative questions and name issues we ought to be wrestling with as educators. All Digital Is resources aim to contribute to a growing knowledge-base about digital writing, teaching, and learning.
Toward the development of this knowledge-base, we welcome resources that:
- attend to our key areas of interest: the art and craft of digital writing and/or the teaching of writing
- take an inquiry stance toward teaching, share the theory of action behind the work and invite reflection and response
- use the tools of digital writing as appropriate to the resource and as supported by the technical capacities of the Digital Is platform.
The audience for the NWP Digital Is website are educators, both in school and out, and those interested in digital writing, teaching, and learning. Public resources may be viewed by anyone; however, audience members are encouraged to join the site and become ‘authenticated users’— or members. Members of the Digital Is website are welcome to contribute ideas and content as participants in discussions on this site.
