Children Writing With New Technologies
Presented by Lisa Kervin
3:45 pm-5:30 pm Thursday 18August, Moonah Arts Centre

Writing is undergoing a period of great change in many classrooms. With new ways of producing texts and constructing meaning using new technologies, there is need to examine what these offer to text creation both in and out of schools.

This presentation will explore learning to write from the perspective of young children as they engage with new technologies. Additionally, what this means for writing pedagogy and for literacy teaching and learning more generally will be examined.
