Celebrate Student Authors! Inspiring Common Core Writing with Technology


Screen Shot 2015-04-17 at 5.44.06 PMThe Common Core State Standards require teachers of all disciplines to integrate writing and technology into their curriculum. In this webinar, learn how student-created eBooks can be used to engage students, while meeting the demands of the Common Core. California teacher Stacy Olson shared strategies for using Shutterfly’s free Photo Story App for the iPad to inspire enthusiastic, confident student authors while also fulfilling CCSS. We have come a long way from yesterday’s report covers and spiral binding! See how easy it is for students to record their voices on each page. At the end of writing projects, optional hard-copy versions of the students’ finished books can be ordered. Stacy’s presentation included: Requirements for implementing technology in the Common Core State Standards; Strategies for integrating technology, writing, listening, and speaking standards; A suggested timeline for creating eBooks with your students; Differentiating to support diverse learners; Ideas for celebrating the writers in your classroom. View the webinar to learn how you can celebrate the student authors in your classroom with student-created eBooks.
