Lecture 3 hours; 3 credits. Prerequisite: ENGL 439W/539. Students in this course will explore different writing environments and educational applications and learn how they are designed to help writers compose, collaborate, research and think. Students will assess the values and theoretical assumptions underlying those applications and learn to articulate their own philosophies of using technologies in the writing classroom.
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
- deconstruct how and why writing is (inherently) technological;
- express reasons and cite data about why it is important to teaching writing with technology in the 21st Century;
- discuss various issues related to teaching writing with technology including but not limited to: setting, technological access and support, legalities like FERPA and copyright;
- discuss various issues related to teaching writing with technology including but not limited to: pedagogy, placement, assessment, writing centers, and multimedia;
- classify different technologies on how and why they (might) pedagogically support the learning of writing; and
- design curriculum that teaches some aspect of writing with some form of technological integration within the lesson plan.
