Educator Innovator—Crafting Digital Writing with Troy Hicks and Guests

June 18, 2013

With so many possibilities for creating and capturing students' digital compositions, how can we invite them to document all their learning? How can they design an effective website? Prepare an aesthetically pleasing presentation? Mix media to compose digital video?

As part of the Summer of Making and Connecting , Educator Innovator sponsors a collaborative conversation, via Google Hangouts on Air, featuring the author of Crafting Digital Writing: Composing Texts Across Genres and Media, and Director of the Chippewa River Writing Project, Troy Hicks . Troy will be talking with colleagues from other National Writing Project sites as they discuss the role of craft to support the teaching of digital writing:

  • Joe Wood, Area 3 Writing Project (California)
  • Melissa Wilson, Columbus Area Writing Project (Ohio)
  • Jenn Wolfe, Cal State Northridge Writing Project (California)
  • Paul Oh, National Writing Project
Learn about the ways these teacher leaders are integrating digital writing into their summer professional development work and discover opportunities to collaborate with educators form across the nation.
