Technology tools and web-based materials support teachers in meeting NCTE and ISTE standards in each stage of the writing process. These standards emphasize the appropriate use of writing strategies and technological resources to communicate with different audiences and with a variety of purposes. This workshop will explore a range of web-based resources and exemplary projects which utilize technology to support these goals. Participants will learn about and experiment with technologies that can be used to facilitate each phase of the writing process (prewriting, writing, revising, publishing, and assessment). For example, participants will review and develop their own graphic organizers to support prewriting, learn about online writing mentor and tutorial resources, and be introduced to online venues for publishing student work. Participants will complete the workshop with a collection of resources and preliminary plans for a classroom writing project that utilizes technology to serve curricular goals.
