Writing in the Digital Age

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The concept of writing is changing rapidly with new digital technologies. When we read, we click on a video, listen to the voice of a presenter or look at the pictures that accompany the text creating a new innovative structure and mindset different from the old structures based on long passages and endless chapters.

Now we can describe the world through an image and it is our job to push the boundaries of that image in order to be creative and become the new writers of the 21st Century.

This presentation is a new radical approach on how we can teach new forms of writing through free multimedia platforms and apps to create, publish and share catchy presentations with stunning visual aids for all types of texts.

We will have a look at the power of the iconography of images and its structure to make students’ writings look better, engaging the audience and presenting text types from a different perspective.

This presentation is very practical. We will have a look at various programs and platforms that can be used in the language classroom, including royalty free high quality resolution images for your students. Please bring your laptops, phones and tablets so that we can all start creating content.

1. To learn new digital media techniques to boost your students’ writing activities in the classroom.
2. To teach how to mix text, images and sound for your students’ presentations in an innovative way to engage a particular audience.
3. To learn which high-quality free apps, royalty photo platforms and websites can be used by your students in the language classroom.
