Creative Writing – Technology for the Classroom

Looking through some apps that integrate creative writing, I have stumbled across a really interesting site that lists a few great tools that can be used to inspire students to enhance their creative writing skills.

One app that has particularly caught my attention is called ‘Writing Challenge‘ which challenges students in an engaging and fun way, with students given a writing prompt and a count down clock. The objective of this task is for students to integrate the prompt into their writing before the clock’s time runs out, at that point a new prompt will be provided and students will need to incorporate this next prompt and so on…

I really love the idea of this as it is a creative, fun and challenging activity that would engage students who are particularly interested in writing. Not only that, but it would enhance not only student writing skills but also their creativity, being put on the spot and needing to imagine scenarios as required.
