Writing, Thinking, Learning in 2010...

As I type this post, I'm listening to a podcast, entering grade updates (online), checking my twitter feed, and pondering writing, learning, and 21st century education technology.

One of my main professional goals this year is to push my students more into using digital platforms to write, express themselves, collaborate, and increase their global understanding. The process is still in the early stages, but I'm planting seeds to get my students thinking about how technology currently plays a role in the way they write, and how digital literacy can increase their written language skills.

Later this week, we will take a look at this article and prompt from the NY Times learning page. Hopefully, writing a 'love letter' to their favorite piece of technology will start to open the door for further discussion...
