Capturing an Authentic Audience

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Using online blogging tools & social learning sites, as well as teaming up with other teachers, students & teachers can create a community space for sharing writing & projects. As Jennifer Ward’s students blogged about inquiry projects, students used online portfolios, blogs, & social media accounts to curate & connect with experts on research topics. Visit Scribe City, an Edmodo group created by Kate Baker, Beth Oing, & Natalee Stotz, which provides students with a community space for focusing on the writing process & giving/receiving feedback on drafts. Or take a gander at Odyssey Experts Contributor Blog (http://odysseyexperts.weebly.com/) & Heroic Honors (http://heroichonors.weebly.com), examples of websites where students can publish their work to an online audience. By encouraging students to develop their own personal learning networks (PLNs), teachers can help students identify & connect with their unique audiences. Learn from teachers & their students in this session about building an audience for student writing.
