- About ATTW
Much discussion among todayâs teachers relates to Web 2.0, especially to
wikis and blogs. How do they work? What do they have to do with
organizational communication? What do they contribute to writing pedagogy?
Are we here just to teach students to use technology? Not at all. While
writers in TPC need to use tools, they also need to be resistant to the
"tool" starting to equal "the work." This workshop session focuses on how
new web tools are about process and on how teachers can use them to help
students work reflectively on goals and means, not just ends.
TPC writers need to know how to create wikis and blogs, but they also need
to recognize that these tools are, like any other writing system, a means
to deal with ever-present rhetorical problems. This workshop will present
ways of working with these tools and using them to help build community in
a heterogeneous class, to capture and become aware of process, and to
build awareness for assessment.
