A revolution in the teaching and learning of writing
How can technology be of greatest benefit teaching writing?
Writing Legends is here to help you:
1. Assist writing processes
Effectively guide learners through their writing development, providing prompts, tools and opportunities for timely feedback.
2. Model and support to instil confidence with consistent criteria
Students benefit by seeing examplars and having them deconstructed to show why they work well. Writing checklists help to guide self-reflection and editing. Vocabulary assistance promotes effective word choices, reducing the reliance on overused words.
3. Build independence
The overarching goal is to develop independent writers who are able to confidently create any text type pitched at an appropriate audience - in each class there are varying degrees of readiness for independence.
4. Showcase every child's greatness
Every piece of writing needs an audience. The value of creating an environment where each child's best writing can shine enhances powerful learning.
5. Supercharge teaching
Great educational technology helps teachers amplify their impact in the classroom. Technology should enhance opportunities for teachers to efficiently and effectively focus on student needs by zoning in on high impact learning experiences.
