Understanding and Creating Digital Texts

Given the increased use of digital reading and writing tools in the classroom, this book provides secondary and college English language arts teachers with activities and classroom examples for using a range of different digital tools—blogs, wikis, websites, annotations, Twitter, mapping, forum discussions, etc.—to engage students in understanding and creating digital texts. It therefore integrates reading and writing instruction through goal-driven activities supported by uses of digital tools.



Understanding and Creating Digital Texts book coverUnderstanding and Creating Digital Texts provides a framework for designing activities that encourage students to define purpose and audience, make connections between digital texts and people, collaborate with others, employ alternative modes of communication and gain new perspectives. You will discover ways to use digital tools to support these practices and make use of digital feedback and e-portfolio tools to foster students’ reflections on their own use of these tools and practices.

The book is published by Rowman & Littlefield (print and e-book) and is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
