Networked Peer Review (NPR)

Written by Rebecca Itow

Networked Peer Review uses social media-type forums such as blogs, wikis, or discussion forums as a place for students to review and reflect upon their writing.  It is typically used for both less formal networked writing and more formal writing (like structured essays). In addition to increasing writing fluency, grammar, and mechanics, students engage in critical analysis of their own and each other’s writing, which helps them develop the skills to write and revise analytically and critically. It also helps students identify and develop the strategies they need to successfully engage in the writing process in this activity and beyond the classroom walls. Further, students learn to use and communicate productively, safely and effectively within a social networking media.
