Creative writing technically involves any writing of original composition in contrast to non-fiction prose. Creative writing is a more contemporary and process-oriented name for what has been traditionally called literature, including the variety of its genres. Nowadays, writing is being fuelled by technology, and educators agree that technology has a positive impact on their students’ writing. The possibility of sharing work with a wider audience beyond the classroom is particularly engaging.
The objectives of this webinar are to:
- introduce the advantages of using technology for creative writing
- present resources and strategies to use technology in creative writing
- show how to personalize, plan and design a lesson based on CW (for teens and young learners)
- discuss how technology and creative writing can positively impact academic writing
