Underutilized Technology Solutions for Student Writing
Curriculum, Instruction, and Special Education
This article provides key considerations and step-by-step procedures useful for any teacher to use when planning to enhance their writing instruction with technology. This includes understanding current writing initiatives as well as recognizing the common behaviors of skilled and struggling writers. Four types of underutilized, yet commonly available technology families are described with associated online tool exemplars. These tools can be used during writing instruction across educational settings to support varying student needs. Recommendations are also made for a step-by-step approach to embedding technology within various components of writing (i.e., prewriting, research, drafting, editing, proofreading) that allows for implementation of writing strategies paired with commonly available technology. Finally, guidelines are shared to support teacher planning and implementation of effective writing strategies supported with technology.
