Digital Strategy 1: Breaking down the process
Writing is a complicated process. It involves thinking about ideas, words, sentences, paragraphs, punctuation, spelling, letter formation, directionality etc. This can be overwhelming for some students (struggling readers, ESL learners, dyslexic students, quick-thinking perfectionists.) We can use technology to assist students in breaking down the process or removing barriers where appropriate.
