Writing and publishing tools

What are writing and publishing tools?

Using online writing tools such as Google docs or a wiki enables students to collaborate and simultaneously contribute to the same document. Writing and publishing tools allow students to share their work with a wider audience, and often receive feedback.

Technologies can be used to support the writing process and are particularly useful in engaging reluctant writers to develop literacy skills. 

Writing and publishing tools allow users to write and manipulate text, and select or upload graphics for digital publications. These maybe software applications installed on your digital device or used directly via an Internet browser. There is a wide range of software tools available for writing and publishing; select the tool that will meet the needs of your students.
