The Cal State Northridge Writing Project

"When students are led in collaborative digital writing projects, they will develop not only their technology skills, but also improve their interpersonal communication and organizational skills. They will learn how to pitch ideas and amend and build on the ideas of others."

-Glen L. Bledsoe "Collaborative Digital Writing: The Art of Writing Together Using Technology" (9-10)

Students never have to worry about leaving their paper or flash drive at home again. Google Docs, an online suite of programs, is similar to Microsoft Office, except students can collaborate, co-author documents, and create spreadsheets and presentations as a group. Teachers can use Google Forms to create formative assessments and surveys. Also, explore ways to utilize Twitter in the classroom.
