How many times have you explained the basics of writing academic essays, business letters, and memos? You can save time explaining by using free web tools, photography and video to show students the basics of writing successful academic and workplace tasks.
Drawing on research and classroom instruction, the facilitator will present theory as well as free web tools to support effective writing for academic and workplace tasks.

Participant outcomes include:

• Identify theory that supports technology-enhanced writing instruction.
• Identify three time-saving techniques to introduce and practice basic writing structure, including indent, margins, skip a line, and quotes.
• Discuss the role of web-based tools in writing instruction.
