5 Online Writing Tools to Help Your Young Students
In today's technological era, parents and educators understandably
worry that young people's literacy could be negatively impacted.
Now that kids can use video chat, voice searching, and send voice
messages, there is a concern that young people could lose the
ability to write down their thoughts and feelings just because
it is no longer necessary for them. As elementary and junior high
school teachers, there is a responsibility to prepare students
for a post-secondary education and a career. This means that they
need to learn to write well in many different ways. These are the
top 5 digital tools or applications that students should use to
improve their written communication skills.
Guest Blogger Ashley Halsey is involved in writing projects with
teachers and educators. She enjoys writing articles challenging
the status quo in education and pushing schools to modernize
