Bitstrips for Schools: Online Writing Environment

video

Recently a valued member of my professional learning network, Doug Peterson, announced a new writing environment was available for use by Ontario teachers and students.

Bitstrips For Schools was tested in a few of our Ontario schools and is now Ministry Licensed for all government funded schools in Ontario.

I'm looking forward to trying it out with a willing teacher and her class. We have a non-fiction writing focus in our district so I think Bitstrips will be a valued addition in our efforts to motivate and engage boy writers. There's a mention of boy learners in this post by one of the Bitstrips creators.

Thank you OSAPAC committee for bringing this on-line, creative writing environment to the teachers and students of Ontario.
