Re:Writing tools for students

This message was posted by lo on Mar 06, 2008.

I love what I have seen in previous school districts with reversing the sequence of the development of writing skills. I am new at the school district I currently serve and implementing such divergent thinking will not be taken lightly. Any suggestions on how to win over staff?
As far as some writing favorites; I have used Co: Writer with a variety of students and often their writing was of higher quality than their reading. I like Kidspiration to help students who struggle with initiating and staying on topic.
I have been using Windows speech to text with great success with a student who previously struggled with Dragon 9.5.
I love technology and all it can do but it is much more than a full time job keeping abreast of the latest trends, selling staff and then training.
