Redefining the Writing Process with iPads

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Text-to-speech, speech-to-text, mind-mapping apps, multimedia, and collaborative documents, all available on iPad and other mobile devices, redefine the writing process. In this session, we will discuss their impact as well as how they can transform the ways in which we think about the development of new literacies across grade levels.

First, we will discuss the potential for these tools to meet a diverse set of learners, highlighting strategies to support students who may struggle with reading, output, organization, or editing. From there, we will explore the potential for collaborative writing and editing. Finally, we will look beyond traditional writing assignments and describe the potential for alternative assessments given the capabilities of mobile technology.

Participants will leave this presentation with a host of tools, ideas, and resources to support the writing process with mobile devices.
