Digitizing the Writing Workshop

A short time ago, I took notes on Troy Hicks' Digital Tools book. However, reflecting on my own experiences today with writing workshop, colleague Diana Benner and I came up with a few thoughts about digitizing the writing workshop.

On April 10th, we'll be sharing our ruminations with the Heart of Texas Writing Conference participants--which, by the way, has its first part tomorrow in Austin, Tx.

Some of the ideas that came up in the conversation, and my apologies for poor handwriting and poorly designed images:

This image below is my way of getting at the difference between digital tools and how they are used by teachers/facilitators to manage the writing workshop vs how they are used by students/writers.

We're also working on an article on the subject and the outline is here. Has anyone else done this work?
