DIGITAL WRITING TWITTER CONVERSATION

One things 4 sure, #Brevity is key to #Microblogging

As is #Immediacy and #ParticipatoryCulture

@Joyce made a great point in her G+ confession about her love of #HarryPotter. “Digital writing could, by the power of the mass, go borderless.”

@Joyce praising #ParticipatoryCulture “The more interaction I got, the more motivated I was”

She spoke about how #fanfiction influenced her language learning. The same could be said for many #DigitalNatives about social media and growing #WritingPractice.

@Rachel is right on the $ with her analysis of #Genre via her media interactions. Flexibility is great when educating students @ informal vs formal writing

@Rachael “out-of-class writing is in fact ‘real’ writing”

But #Form when it comes to #Genre cannot be ignored.

#Form can be altered as @Colin points out with his Spin project #MakeDocumentationFun

#Genre is always changing because people are always changing.

#Reproduction is cool, but #CriticallyBreakingConventions might be cooler.

#Audience and #Medium is important.

@tejucole demonstrates this with his twitter story #Hafiz

“Revolution isn’t about the tools, but how the tools are being used” #LandscapeOfDigitalWriting

As we’ve learned, #Microblogging is akin to #JournalWriting.

@Penzu anyone? Great site for online journaling. #TechnologyMeetsWriting

#Microblogging often blurs the line between #Authors and #Readers

#LauraRandazzoBlog. Authors, readers, teachers, it’s all the same.

#Collaborative #Storytelling is just another way as @Colin pointed out, 4 “us to consider how to we need to adapt to changing text forms and practices.”

All of this means students are learning no more no less, but #New Ways of #Navigating and #Remixing the old.

#EducationIsExpanding

But WE must not 4Get that #ParticipatoryCulture and #Access does not = #EffectiveUse of #Tech

Consider #Enculturation. Act skillfully. Contribute. Make meaning.

That’s why teachers are still important.

They have the power to #Guide, #NotDumpJustInformation

And not just thru integration of technology. But by “uncovering most powerful uses of tech to accomplish learning goals for specific students” (29).

Writing means taking risks. Let’s take risks together #DigLits2016
