This presentation will highlight how using online tools can engage students in 21st century literacies, primarily writing and thinking, in a way that traditional pedagogy cannot. Particularly, using online tools affords digital natives the opportunity to receive instant feedback (in additional to traditional feedback) and flexibility with participation time that can motivate students to achieve at higher levels. This presentation will unpack how a teacher can incorporate online tools to calibrate their scoring of writing and keep students connected with their class and with their content as much as students are connected to their computers to limit academic regression when students are away from school. Because the new Common Core requires that all teachers become literacy teachers, this workshop will discuss online tools that support teachers who are not classically trained writing teachers bridge the gaps that may be left despite a district's professional development initiatives
