Welcome to digitalteachers.net

Welcome to digitalteachers.net

Welcome to The Digital Teachers Project, a resource for teachers to connect with colleagues, access effective practices for integrating digital learning into their classrooms and get some feedback.

This site is run by Young Writers Project, a Vermont non-profit that operates youngwritersproject.org (a student-directed, mentored, online community open to ANY students ANYWHERE); publishes student work in newspapers, on various Web sites and in thevoice.youngwritersproject.org, a monthly digital magazine; and provides Professional Development to schools (with unique trainings that involve teachers AND students) and a FREE online classroom platform for schools.

Our mission is to help kids become better writers. We hope that our experience, ideas and learnings from other teachers will assist those instructing writing in all curricula.

On this site, we have a Professional Learning Network that anyone can join (NOTE: to prevent spammers, we manually approve each account, so be patient.)

We also have some great  teacher tips here; we add new tips each week and new exercises almost daily. 

Want to join the Professional Learning Network? Click Login/Join. And jump in once your account is approved.

Questions? Contact: Geoffrey Gevalt at 802-324-9537 or email him.

Links to help you become Digital Teachers

DIGITAL TEACHING 

To fully integrate digital technology into your teaching, you have to transform what you are doing rather than just use technology as a way to do what you did before. You need to stay on top of changes, be adaptive to enlisting your students to help and give to them some control of the learning process. All of this, of course, comes against a backdrop of new iniatives, not enough equipment and not enough training. So this ongoing and changing collection of resources, organizational tools and cool apps are intended to help you in your endeavors; while YWP doesn't specifically endorse these applications, we have checked them out and we've chosen these over dozens upon dozens of others to save you a little time. Our biases are these: That the application works, that it is low cost or free; that its relatively simple; that it has use in a digital writing classroom enviroment.

This is a wiki, a document editable by other members of this site. If you wish to add your links, please do so. This is a living breathing document that will be updated on a regular basis. -- geoff gevalt, director of young writers project, inc.
