On Wednesday, October 14th, Pearson is offering a free webinar examining the impact of new technologies on literacy and writing instruction. I emailed Pearson’s media representative for more details and I found out a little more about the webinar than is on the webinar sign-up page. The webinar is geared toward higher-education, but will also have some content of interest to high school teachers. The webinar will address writing instruction techniques that include writing blogs and wikis. There will also be a discussion of copyright issues. You can read more about the webinar here and register for the webinar here.
