Intended as a resource for her students, the site offers a plethora of information for anyone navigating the world of digital communication.

Because the site is designed for her students, there are tons of examples of how you can incorporate technology into your classroom activities. Whether you use Digital Writing 101 for you own edification or as a resource for your students, it’s a worthwhile site to bookmark.
