  • Digital Storytelling with the iPad: Creating Book Trailers

    Background

    Through a generous grant from a corporate sponsor, our university was able to purchase 14 iPads with iMovie, young adult literature selections for book circles, and video cameras for a book trailer project with a local middle school. A book trailer is, no surprise here, a trailer for a book in the style of a movie trailer. Search YouTube for your favorite book + "book trailer" or "trailer" and you will be sure to find an example or two.

  • Inside the Digital Classroom

    I wrote this chapter, "Inside the Digital Classroom," for Teaching the Neglected R: Rethinking Writing Instruction in Secondary Classrooms edited by Thomas Newkirk and Richard Kent and published by Heinemann. It's a glimpse into how writing happens - at least some of the time - in a language arts classroom that has transformed into one highly focused on multimedia, student centered learning, and written conversation.

  • Art, Image, Word

    Writing was always about the word. Even the most read book of all acknowledges that elemental idea: In the beginning, there was the Word... This collection looks beyond the word, examining how the digital transcends the traditional, reshaping and re-envisioning building blocks of literacy to convey meaning.

  • Participatory Media

    Jenkins, et al. (2007) characterize today's society as one based on participation, using the term "participatory culture" to describe how we are no longer pure consumers of media, but producers, sharers, and collaborators.

  • Shifting from the writers workshop to the makers workshop

    A few weeks ago, I had a brief Twitter conversation with Paul Oh and Ira Socol about how little we re-read and re-write in schools. One of Paul's tweets about design-thinking sparked my part of the conversation. I see writing as a design process - we craft it. We plan, draft, revise, publish, and evaluate the effectiveness of our writing in a variety of ways as adults and educators. It's an iterative process. We write and re-write for impact. We read and re-read for meaning and enjoyment.

  • Discussing the Digital Writing Workshop

    For over five years, the Teachers Teaching Teachers webcast has provided a number of educators, especially those affiliated with the NWP, a forum in which to share their work. 

    In the fall of 2009, I co-hosted three episodes of "Teachers Teaching Teachers" where we invited colleagues featured in The Digital Writing Workshop to share their ideas about teaching in a digital writing workshop.

    Then, in early 2010, I was invited back to talk with Renee Hobbs, author of Copyright Clarity, How Fair Use Supports Digital Learning.

  • Writing as Collaborative Creation

    Victor leaves us speechless as his life history, compressed into a two minute digital story, is screened before our class. For the nearly silent boy who passes through high school on a fringe of acceptance, the applause marks a rare public recognition of his writer’s voice.
