Surviving the Writing Apocalypse: Inspiring Storytellers Who Will Thrive in the Digital Age

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

From robot overlords to the zombie pandemic, students are bombarded with ideas about the end of the world. Books themselves are also experiencing mass die outs and mutations as readers transition to digital media. How can you use this apocalypse to create a writing utopia?

In this session, you will learn how to redefine storytelling through technology and explore new ways to build students’ multiliteracy skills. We will introduce you to activities, resources, prompts, and tools you can use in the classroom. Join us on a creative journey as we write, create artwork, and use tech tools to produce a digital masterpiece.
