Edutopia – Writing in the Digital Age

The latest installment of Edutopia’s Big Thinkers Series highlights the roll of writing in the new Digital Age. There is a great short video that highlights the changing role of writing in the modern world: the writing/editing process, publication (including the rise of self-publication), and collaborative writing and analyses processes.

    This is a really wonderful video that succinctly synthesizes the new opportunities of the writing tool for communication. I really like the understanding that the focus remains on the importance of the craft and skill in assembling the written words but that the opportunities are much greater for creativity and engagement. Very cool. I am going to use the video in a proseminar presentation of digital technologies to incoming graduate students in our department in a couple of week. Thanks.
