Inspiring Young Writers with Making, Coding, #twihaiku, and Digital Tool

When:  Dec 17, 2019 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM (ET)
With inspiration, support, and tools at the ready, kids can and will write anytime and anywhere. In this session, we will showcase how makerspaces and making activities, coding, multimedia production, and interactive digital tools and apps can foster creative writing by kids of all ages. The webinar will begin with exploring creative writing exercises—composing math comics, designing 3D models, generating memes, creating stop motion animation videos, coding stories, and crafting rhymes and songs. Then, attendees will explore more than 100 digital tools and apps for inspiring writing. Finally, the webinar will wrap up with a discussion of strategies to enliven interest and enjoyment from writing for students in school. Attendees will leave the webinar with tools, strategies, and ideas for (re)inspiring writing in any grade level or subject.

Presenters: Torrey Trust, Robert Maloy, and Sharon Edwards (authors of the new book Kids Have All the Write Stuff: Revised and Updated for a Digital Age)
