Turnitin, a global leader in evaluating student work, is having a free Virtual Conference, April 18-22nd.
WritingXTech 2016: The Writing Mindset
Do your students think writing is just conventions and words on a page? Join us to explore how thinking differently about writing can engage your students and set them up for success.
It’ll include nine sessions with questions like:
- How can we encourage students to understand that writing is more that merely following conventions?
- How can instruction open students’ minds and help them write better?
- How do we use technology to support development of writing skills?
