“Beware the Ides of March,” said the soothsayer in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, but in today’s world he would likely have tweeted that warning or written it on Caesar’s FaceBook wall. There’s no need for you to be wary of the Ides of March this year because that’s when we will present a webinar about how students can use social media to improve their writing.

In past webinars we have taken a close look at the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, focusing on the standards for reading literary and informational text. This week we will explore the writing standards paying particular attention to digital writing. Many of you have participated in past webinars on the writing process from the 2009 – 2010 school year and have a good overview of how our MLTI devices support all stages of the writing process. If you need a refresher, you can find links to all those webinar recordings on our archives page.

In this session we will look specifically at social media and how educators can help students become better writers and meet the writing standards through the participatory web. We’ll look at the opportunities social media provide for writing different types of texts for different purposes, for publishing to various audiences, and for conducting research.
