Technology makes writing better. Discuss

Hi and welcome to my blog, especially if you are coming to my session at the Macmillan Teachers Day here in Barcelona tomorrow, May 4th.

In my session, "Technology makes writing better", I'm going to be suggesting that Web 2.0 tools such as Blogger, Edmodo, Google Drive (formerly Google Docs) and TodaysMeet make the sort of writing task we get on Cambridge exams like FCE, CAE and Proficiency better — in that, with the help of not too much technology the tasks can be made more collaborative and thus more fun, more productive in terms of language learning, and so much more 21st century.

Links from the session

After the session, I'll be posting an edited version of the presentation on Slideshare, and here on my blog…

Comments, feedback, suggestions, other ideas…? Do make them — either here or else on the TodaysMeet for the session.

  1. Thanks to all of you who came to the session.

    I'll be providing a copy of the presentation with all the links etc., here sometime in the next 24 hours.

    Meanwhile, here's one of the links, and an issue people always ask about: how do you correct errors?

  2. For some reason the Slideshare embed there is not working.

    If you click the link and go to the version on Slideshare you will be able to view the presentation as intended.
